I don’t really know if you should be worried or not… But I never even noticed when my stone was certified. I guess it is possible that there’s so many diamonds in a given store they just happened to not sell it for years. I feel like when certified, nothing can really change… But again, this is all just my assumptions.

Pantone032:  Mine was certified somewhere around 2005 too and my fiancé just purchased it 6 months ago. My diamond has been inspected since and it’s totally fine. Don’t worry about the certiffcation date, as long as it’s certified you are good to go! Good luck on the proposal and congrats!

Pantone032:  You’ve seen the diamond in person- so the store must have it. 

I do know there are places- basically pools of diamonds that are in a database– and then when it gets chosen- by a store or a consumer, it gets shipped to the appropriate outlet. 

I’ve never seen a database listed by date of certification– so it might just be that this diamond has been unintentionally looked over for a long while.

I honestly don’t believe it’s anything to be concerned about as long as you’re happy with the specs, it comes with the certification, and – just for peace of mind- you are able to see the laser inscription (if there is one)–
