The new London drop-off point will give UK jewellers easy access to HRD Antwerp’s services, including jewellery and diamond grading reports.
HRD Antwerp said the new drop-off point in London is designed to be convenient and easy to use. Loose diamonds and diamond jewellery can be brought or shipped to the London drop-off point. The diamonds are then sent to HRD Antwerp’s grading lab for comprehensive testing and grading, before being returned to London.
Each unmounted diamond will be accompanied by a grading report which clearly specifies that the diamond is natural, and rates it against the 4Cs. Each diamond jewellery piece will be issued with a unique grading report specifying the same.
David Ziegler, commercial director of HRD Antwerp, said: “There are increasing amounts of laboratory grown diamonds available on the market. In an industry where so much relies on trust, it’s essential that you safeguard your reputation by certifying that all of your diamonds are natural and untreated.
“A cost-effective grading report from HRD Antwerp is the most trusted and efficient way of ensuring all of your unmounted and mounted diamonds are 100% natural.”
