diamond grading report

We constantly challenge ourselves, to innovate, seek out new sources of inspiration and strive for perfection, so that our customers know exactly what kind of diamond they possess, which in turn gives them peace of mind.


Diamond Lab

HRD Antwerp's primary shareholder is the Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC). The AWDC is a private foundation established in 1973 as the Hoge Raad voor Diamant (HRD) or Diamond High Council and represents the Belgian diamond industry.
HRD Antwerp is Europe’s leading authority when it comes to diamond grading, and draws on 570 years of experience passed down through Antwerp’s diamond trade. An HRD Antwerp grading allows any consumer to purchase diamonds or jewellery in full confidence.

Quality that inspires confidence

The integrity of the HRD Antwerp grading process is absolute. Our diamond lab applies an uncompromising operating code which it supports by using some of the most sophisticated technology and qualified graders available. HRD Antwerp's extensive in-house research department makes sure all processes are updated according to the latest industry developments.

Strict anonymity and objectivity

The absolute objectivity of the grading results is guaranteed by means of a double coding system: one set of codes is given to the owner, while the other follows the diamond in the lab. Strict anonymity guarantees strict objectivity.
