This has resulted to serious implications and overhauling of diamond grading in the US despite the strong reputation of EGL USA. If you have been sold a diamond or planning to purchase one, you should be aware of the facts about diamond overgrading.

EGL vs GIA Grading

In one of the many Dallas Diamond Doctor reviews, a customer complained that he was sold a diamond which was not GIA certified. Diamond grading can be very technical. Organizations such as EGL and GIA have their system of grading diamonds. Diamond sellers can use these systems to grade diamonds and thus, know their monetary value. However, the reputation of EGL have been questioned due to the inconsistency and subjectivism of the organization’s grading of diamonds. The grading of one diamond of an EGL International and/or national jeweller could differ from that of another leading to variations in pricing of the same diamond.

The GIA grading system, however, is consistent and reliable. Diamond Doctor customer reviews claim their diamonds did not come with GIA certification. GIA grading is a standard followed by majority of jewellers around the globe. Is your diamond GIA certified?
