The diamond industry is notoriously steeped in industry jargon that can be difficult to understand. You may own a diamond that was gifted to you, and therefore you may not have any understanding as to what kind of diamond it is. This is particularly common with engagement rings. Use our diamond glossary to better better comprehend any certificates or appraisals on your diamond. Our goal is to educate our customers on how diamonds are valued and how much they are worth when it comes to resale.
