The Diamond Lab of HRD Antwerp was founded in 1976 to meet the growing demand for reliable diamond certificates or grading reports. It’s the largest diamond lab in the world to conform to the rules for grading polished diamonds set by the International Diamond Council. These rules have been approved by the World Federation of Diamond Bourses and the International Diamond Manufacturers Association, the industry’s two leading representative bodies.
Furthermore, in 1996, the Diamond Lab became the first diamond grading facility worldwide to be officially accredited according to the stringent international standards of NBN EN ISO/IEC 17025, specifically designed for laboratories by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)
The integrity of the grading process is absolute. The Diamond Lab applies an uncompromising operating code which it supports by using some of the most sophisticated technology and qualified graders that work in the trade. It is constantly kept up-to-date on the latest developments and innovations in the profession by HRD Antwerp’s extensive in-house Research department.
The results of the examinations performed are based on scientific methods and observations made in the Diamond Lab and in the labs of its partnering universities.
The absolute objectivity of the grading results is guaranteed by means of a double coding system: one set of codes is given to the owner, while the other follows the diamond in the lab. Strict anonymity guarantees strict objectivity.
The results of all HRD Antwerp certificates are kept on file for 10 years. At all times, you can retrieve your certificates issued after 1 January 2005 on the Internet. All you need to do is access the HRD Antwerp Certificate Link at www.hrdantwerplink.be.
