When you start looking at purchasing EGL diamonds, the large number of options may surprise you. There are many different rating systems and inspection services available. However, one of the most well-known is EGL diamonds. Learn more about what EGL certified diamonds are and what you need to know before you purchase a diamond—from MID House of Diamonds or any other diamond resource.

The first step is discovering exactly what EGL diamonds means. EGL stands for European Gemological Laboratory. This organization is one of the key players when it comes to examining and rating diamonds of all sizes, shapes and types. EGL is a large independent institute that focuses on gemstone research and certification. While there are any number of companies that provide this service, EGL is one of the oldest—offering extensive knowledge and expertise on the subject.

Companies that buy, sell and produce products with diamonds use the services offered by EGL diamonds. If something is EGL certified, it means that one of the employees of this laboratory has inspected the diamond and certified that it meets or exceeds the standards put in place by the firm for that particular grade. An EGL certified diamond can be big, small, high-quality or affordable—it just has to meet the requirements for THAT grade category.
