Global Gem Lab: Diamond Grading and Analysis
The MiaDonna Diamond Hybrid® has been recognized by an earth mined
diamond grading company called Global Gem Lab (GGL) located in
California USA. The GGL grades for many companies you've heard of like
Fred Meyer Jewelers, Kay Jewelers and Jared's and since the MiaDonna
Diamond Hybrid® is created using the latest in Man-Made Diamond
technology, they have also backed MiaDonna&Co.
|Complimentary Identification Card
All MiaDonna Diamond Hybrids® automatically come with this identification Card from GGL with a brief description of the technology used to create the Diamond Hybrid®.
|Optional Grading Card
If you wish, you have the option to have the GGL give your ring a thorough grading of all the stones and precious metals used. This Grading Card is available at checkout.
All MiaDonna Diamond Hybrids® will automatically come with
an Identification Card from the Global Gem Lab, giving a statement as to
the technology used in creating the Diamond Hybrid®.
This is for your piece of mind because it verifies all our statements
here at MiaDonna.com. However, If you wish to have your finished piece
sent to the lab for grading of the actual stones set in your ring simply
add the Grading Card at checkout and we will ship your finished ring to
the lab where every stone will be individually graded on its 4C's using
the identical qualifiers used to grade earth mined diamonds.
We like the idea of providing our customers grading cards from a real
company that have established themselves as a leader in the diamond
grading and appraisal industry in order to offer an independent,
unbiased opinion and grading of our Diamond Hybrid®.
There are two specific pieces to the MiaDonna Diamond Hybrid® grading
cards that will give you the additional verification you are looking
1) The GGL will grade the cut, clarity, color and carat size of the Diamond Hybrid® and any other stones used in your setting. The
grading card will also identify the precious metal used in creating your
2) The second piece verifies technology and states that MiaDonna’s
Diamond Hybrid® is a diamond simulant with an infused outer
layer of man made diamond.
Intertek Northwest, an independent testing firm with global presence
performed a Raman Analysis on both a MiaDonna Diamond Hybrid®
and a natural diamond. The purpose of this test is to show that the
MiaDonna Diamond Hybrid®, with its enhanced amorphous diamond infusion,
readily shows a diamond signature that is in line with the signature of
a natural Diamond.
Because our Diamond Hybrid® contains diamond bonds in its
outer layers it spikes at nearly the same frequency as the natural
diamond. These diamond bonds are called SP3 bonds and account for nearly
85% of the Diamond hybrids® outer layer. SP3 bonds are the identical
diamond carbon bonds that real diamonds contain.
GemEx Brilliancescope Test
The MiaDonna Diamond Hybrid® was evaluated by the world
renowned GemEx Brilliancescope a GIA graduate gemologists diamond
grading report. Because it is made with diamond, our Diamond
Hybrid® truly mimics the appearance and beauty of the highest quality
natural diamonds. The test measures White light return or Brilliance,
Colored light return or Fire and Scintillation or sparkle. The
BrillanceScope test uses a light that is shined at the stone from 6
different angles. If you were to test an earth mined diamond in this
manner the stone would have to have a 0 grade cut, be a D in color and
Internally Flawless. A 1 carat earth mined diamond with these grades and
light return would sell in the neighborhood of $20,000.00
