I was wondering about branded and non branded hearts and arrows. Is there a difference between the two other than one is certified and costs alot more? If a really well cut non branded diamond displayed a perfect hearts and arrows pattern under a scope would it be any different than a branded hearts and arrows diamond?

Run an archive search (advanced search) on 'unbranded' and you will find alot of threads with responses on this subject...good luck!

What do you mean by certified? There is no agency that certifies diamonds.

Hi ACF,

The short answer to your question is that you can easily get an unbranded H&A that is equal to or better than alot of brands. This however (IMO) must be presented with photographic evidence. This is the only way to accurately show whether a branded or unbranded stone is superior/inferior in it's optical precision. I can point you to branded stones that are optically inferior to unbranded and vice/versa. Hope that helps somewhat.


Kind regards,
Rhino
