Dubai; August 20, 2007: International Diamond Laboratories IDL’s leading edge technologies have moved Diamond Grading From an Art To a Science™. At IDL, objectivity is not just a statement, it is the result of scientifically based standards and methods. Consistency through technology™ is IDL’s commitment to the diamond and jewellery professionals and the public it serves worldwide.

IDL collected together an international team of top experts with a wide-range of management, operational and research experience. Its senior gemologists all have extensive experience at reputed gemological institutes. Its researchers have a strong academic background as well as field experience with leading institutions within the diamond trade and its management team brings together leading players from all aspects of the diamond trade. The team is supported by a Board of Directors representing its stakeholders as well as industry leaders.

The Board of Directors:

IDL called upon international experience to run its lab operations. We appointed senior officers with a strong background at gemological laboratories in key positions in order to deliver the quality products the market deserves. Dr. David Rutledge, CEO of DMCC.

IDL strives to associate experienced gemologists and researchers with external engineers and scientists to develop new technological applications. That is how we bring Diamond Grading From an Art To a Science™. Peter Meeus, CEO of IDL.

IDL is the only government supported diamond laboratory with an international vocation and one of the few in the Middle-East. But most importantly, it is the first and only to issue certificates in the Arabic language. Ahmed bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman of DMCC.

‘As the number of treated diamonds and synthetics increases, so does the role and responsibility of laboratories. IDL commits to contributing to further enhance consumer confidence in diamonds. Peter Gross, Former global head Int. Diamond & Jewellery Group at ABN AMRO Bank.

‘Certificates can help manufacturers and dealers in driving their sales. As a retailer oriented diamond lab, IDL offers programs that support sales and stimulates diamond consumption. Ian White, former Sales Director of DTC.

IDL promised not to become just another diamond lab. It looked at every detail, analyzing it, valuing it, reinventing it when necessary. IDL proudly presents its revolutionary range of products and services aiming at providing more added value to the trade, supporting consumer confidence and driving demand for diamonds.

  • Highest Grading Standards: Color. IDL has introduced ground-breaking technology, the IDL Color Meter™, that determines the exact color value of a diamond with accuracy far above existing color grading capabilities and in a consistent manner. Color results are charted on the IDL Satbar™, a unique and accurate scientifically based scale, while still reflecting the D to Z grades.
  • Clarity. IDL is the first global diamond lab to achieve a full definition of the SI3 clarity grade. It bridges the existing gap on the market between the SI2 and I1 grade.
  • Cut. IDL is licensed to grade in accordance with the GIA Diamond Cut Grading System.

Ideal Services:

  • Digicert. IDL’s secure digital platform enables clients to track the progress of their diamond within the lab. Grading results can be reviewed even before the diamond has physically returned. The digital certificate can immediately be forwarded to downstream customers, offering an unprecedented speed of certification. IDL is the first diamond lab to offer a fully integrated digital platform for certificates.
  • 48 hours. Only IDL provides grading results within 48 hours.
  • Arabic Certificate. IDL Certificates are available both in English and Arabic language.
  • Global. IDL operates offices in the heart of the leading diamond centres of Antwerp (Belgium), Dubai (UAE) and Mumbai (India).

The Products:

  • The IDL Diamond Certificate offers in a threefold luxurious cover detailed information on the 4C’s. It confirms the natural character of the diamond and offers a detailed plotting of the internal and external characteristics of the diamond.
  • The IDL Mini Cert is a twofold document offering detailed information on the 4Cs and it confirms the natural character of the diamond. It is available for diamonds up to 1 ct.
  • The IDL Color Certificate is a brand new product. It confirms if the diamond is natural and provides the carat weight and color grade.
  • The IDL Sealing showcases the diamond in a tamper-proof container. It is transparent and clearly summarizes the 4Cs.
  • IDL Certified diamonds can be laser- inscribed with text or symbols in accordance with the wishes of the client.
