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.
