THE “3C’s” OF DIAMOND LOVE BOND

Since 1953, the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) has provided an unambiguos diamond grading system, know as the “4C’s System) which has been recognized and used globally by all gemological laboratories:
Cut, Color, Carat, Clarity
.

In order to improve its services, in 2005 Diamond Love Bond conceived three new parameters, the “3C”: Confidence, Certificate, Cost in addition to the GIA’s “4C”.
Starting from Semptember 2016, Diamond Love Bond has introduced the IDR – Investment Diamond Report (now IDC – Investment Diamond Certificate), created by Rapaport Group to separate premium quality from other high quality diamonds.

CONFIDENCE

In order to fully understand the variables of purchasing a diamond it’s necessary to have institutions that guarantee the reputation, ethic and transparency of the transactions.
Diamond Love Bond operates on an international scale and works exclusively with the main partners of the major mine operators: Alrosa (Russia), Anglo American (De Beers), Rio Tinto and Dominion Diamond Corporation. Our diamonds are guaranteed “conflict free” and “child labor free”.

CERTIFICATE

When buying a diamond it is essential to verify the prestige of its gemological certification.

Two diamonds with the same characteristics, certified by two different gemological institutes might have very different prices depending on technology and expertise: the gap could be up to 20%.

The GIA is able to accurately identify synthetic diamonds and is the most qualified certifier of Natural Fancy Color diamonds.

Today the GIA is considered the most renowned gemological laboratory in the world.

For all these reasons, Diamond Love Bond’s gems are certified by GIA and in addition by the Rapaport Group.

COST

The wholesale price of diamonds is based on the supply and demand in the rough and cut Diamond Markets. The main one is in Antwerp (Belgium), followed by New York, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Shanghai, and Ramat Gan (Israel).

The reference price guide used in the Market is the “Rapaport Diamond Report” edited by the Rapaport Group.
Since 2009 there is also a detailed guide published by IDEX  called “DRB Diamond Retail Benchmark” that assembles the street prices from the major jewelry companies: Graff, Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Moussaieff, Tiffany, Bulgari, Chow Tai Fook.

Every market actor sets a price depending on the desired mark-up.

The suggestion for the client is to compare the gem quality (with the help of the certificate) with the price.

Diamond Love Bond offers the highest quality, excellent services and unparalleled prices.
