Certificate of authenticity
A created diamond is a real diamond
David Locco's diamonds are known by several names: sustainable, created, cultivated, ethical... They are all right. However, there is a common question that the firm wants to answer to all those who wish to dive into the respectful universe of the brand.
You are buying a natural diamond
Those who call them "synthetic" are only confusing and staining the paths of science. A David Locco diamond is not born from the synthesis of elements nor from artificial creation. Our stones share a DNA identical to that of mined diamonds.
An extracted diamond needs a quality certificate too
Our created diamonds are so identical to extracted ones that they also need the approbation and certificate of a prestigious gemological institute to be considered diamonds as such. The conclusion is simple: if both need this approbation and both achieve the same certificate, this means that in both cases we are talking about stones with identical characteristics.
International Gemological Institute certificate (IGI)
The IGI is the most prestigious International Gemological Institute in the world. David Locco has the honour of being the first firm in the world certified by the IGI for using only lab-created diamonds in their jewellery.
