A gem certificate, also known as a grading report, is an easily understood document prepared by an expert gemologist that describes the key characteristics of a gem. A certificate from a gemological laboratory verifies the quality of a loose gem and allows non-experts to make educated buying decisions. At EcoMoissanite, we rely both on our in-house expert gemologist to certify our moissanite gems and on highly regarded, internationally acclaimed gemological laboratories to certify every loose lab-grown diamond we offer. These laboratories use universally recognised standards for grading gems.
