Our process for diamond certifications in Brisbane
Ashley Douglas Jewellers offers two types of Diamond certification for our clients.
GIA diamond certification
Firstly, the majority of Loose Diamonds we import for custom made jewellery are GIA Certified. This is done by a regional GIA Office depending on the location we source the original loose diamond from. Other Diamond certification brands we use on occasion are HRD Antwerp.
Gem lab certification
In the case that we source uncertified Loose Diamonds for our Brisbane Jewellery design Studio we use a local Independent Gemmological Laboratory called ADGL to certify the loose diamond once we have imported them. If you have inherited a family heirloom, purchased second hand jewellery or never acquired a diamond certificate with your original jewellery purchase then using the local Gem lab (ADGL) for certification is our recommendation. Some insurance companies will request or require this form of paperwork to properly insure your jewellery, and ensure that you are able to replace your lost or stolen item with the same product.
