They appear to be a third tier lab in Antwerp and Israel. Never heard of them.
Usually small labs have to be a grade or 3 softer than GIA in order to get business.
A G might be I or J according to GIA.

I am astonished these labs are not prosecuted for fraud!

Color and clarity grades determine value as much as the carat weight does.
Imagine if labs "graded" a 0.74 ct as 1.0 ct.

AFAIC both should be equally-illegal lies when it comes to sales of diamonds..

Of course. If it would be the same then no one would send diamonds to 3rd tier grading labs.

A 5ctw tennis bracelet will be set with melee around .10ct each, which are typically not lab graded. You are at the mercy of the retailer and their estimation of cut, color, clarity, etc. for diamonds that small. Any in-house certification or appraisal they provide will be biased and usually generous. That is why it is important o purchase from a retailer with a good return policy. You can take the bracelet to a third party independent appraiser for an unbiased opinion.

I wouldn't purchase something this big without knowing it was from a reputable company that uses a reputable grading lab

@Mat , welcome to PriceScope.

This may be useful:

Grades for diamonds in finished jewelry can be inflated. Most jewelry grading is done for big box stores that solicit bids from competing graders. ‘Discount laboratories,’ which primarily exist to write jewelry reports, inflate color and clarity grades to win and keep big contracts. The situation is so common that many shoppers in malls get a false, negative first impression regarding warmer colors and normally eye-clean clarity grades.

Jewelry sellers using eCommerce platforms like eBay may use discount laboratories for jewelry grading, since inflated grades make their products seem more competitively priced in searches.

Some top-tier laboratories do issue jewelry reports. These institutes, known for loose diamond and gemstone grading, are more capable of enforcing strict, internationally accepted standards than little-known discount laboratories which would not exist without the chain stores they serve.

Why dont you get a price quote from ID Jewelry. They do a lot of eternity bands and tennis bracelets. The ring in
my avatar is from ID Jewelry. Lots of PSers have IDJewelry jewelry. Ask for PS quality stones (they will be better cut).


We can vouch for ID Jewelry. We cant vouch for or really tell you anything about the stones you'll be getting from the vendor
you are using. Make sure they have a full refund, 2 weeks+, no questions asked return policy so if the bracelet is not
as expected you can easily return it.
