I was given my grandmothers 1 ct diamond engagement ring & I am going to have it made into a 3 stone setting. The diamond is becatiful but I dont know anything about it. Should I have it certifed?
I’ve talked to some jewlers and they will appraise it for insurance purposes by giving a close estimate of the specs of the diamond. But that won’t tell me anything about cut, color, clarity, & color. They said they would just match the sidestones by eye. I’m wondering if I should go through GIA and get it certified? I’m not sure if it even matters I just know that once I get my ring set I dont want to ever have to remove to diamond.
Does anyone have experience with this or any thoughts?
