Why we work with GIA...

Why we work with GIA...

Since there are established grading scales for the 4Cs of diamonds, you know what to expect from the stones from lab to lab, right? Well, not exactly. There are actually 4 different labs, and their grading systems can vary.

While each of these labs will grade diamonds for their cut, clarity, color, and carat weight, GIA is a nonprofit and the world’s leading authority on diamonds, gemstones, and pearls. They have the highest standards for grading and education. At With Clarity, we only use GIA certified diamonds because we know the grading reports are stringent and trustworthy, and we can use them to help our customers find beautiful stones.

What is a gemologist?

What is a gemologist?

Simply put, a gemologist is an expert in gems. But here at With Clarity, they’re more than that. Think of them as your guide through the extensive database of diamonds to which we have access. They know what features will make for a diamond that sparkles with an unmatched brilliance, but also that we live in the real world (they’re real people on our live chat!) where bills and responsibilities exist. So they’re also experts at figuring out where you can save money without sacrificing beauty in your stone to get the most gorgeous ring possible on a budget.

Our gemologists also make no commission off of their sales. We believe in the job they do, and sometimes that means telling you not to buy a less-than-ideal diamond. So we built a staff without a commission model so you know they’re here to help you, not just make a sale.

What it’s like to work with a gemologist

Just as there’s no right diamond, just the right diamond for you, there’s no right way to shop. So we made our experts accessible in several ways to suit your life. You can contact them through live chat, email, or phone but you can also pull them in at multiple points in your search. We’ve outlined below what it’s like to work with a With Clarity gemologist if you want their guidance every step of the way. But this is flexible. Our gemologists know the process inside and out, and there here for you no matter how much help you need.

No.1

You tell our experts your priorities (white, big, or clear) for your diamond and your budget. Or just tell them your budget and preferred shape if you’re just starting your search.

No.2

They’ll comb through the listings to find 3 diamonds that match your wants within your price range. They can also help you figure out the 4Cs and your priorities.

No.3

They carefully vet the one you choose (even if they didn’t find it) for flaws, explaining their thinking along the way. They can even advise on complementary settings for your stone.

The process isn’t done until you’re happy. Don’t like their selections? Tell them why they’re not the right fit and our experts will dive back in to find one that is. They might even find one in your price range you never thought possible thanks to their expertise and experience.
