HRD Antwerp launched a new diamond certificate on the first day of business of the new year, and has reportedly had a successful response to the same. Within a week after issuing the new certificates, HRD Antwerp has received considerable interest from both the Belgian and international diamond sectors. The new diamond certificate includes improved security features, a refined cut grade and the HRD Antwerp Certificate Link feature, which enables the retrieval and downloading of certificates online in a variety of languages.

“The end of December and beginning of January are typically slow in the diamond business, and that has been intensified by the worldwide financial downturn.” “We are therefore delighted at the enthusiasm that has been generated by the new HRD Antwerp diamond certificate during the week of its launch.” said Georges Brys, HRD Antwerp’s General Manager.

HRD Antwerp’s refined Cut Grade includes a more comprehensive analysis of cut than the one that has featured on HRD Antwerp grading reports to date. Instead of reporting about cut using two parameters – Proportions and Finish – HRD Antwerp will now assess the cut according to three parameters: Proportions, Symmetry and Polish. The refined grade features for the first time a finding of “Excellent.” The range of security features, which render it practically impossible to forge an HRD Antwerp certificate, are unique to the industry. They include line structures, a watermark, an embossed logo, fluo marks and micro-text.

“Customer confidence is our first priority,” said Brys. “This is clearly enhanced by the new certificates, and it is further backed up by laser inscriptions and ability to conduct an online check.” Using HRD Antwerp Certificate Link, all HRD Antwerp Diamond Certificates, Diamond Identification Reports and Diamond Colour Certificates issued after January 1, 2005, can now be retrieved online in English, Turkish, Mandarin, Cantonese or Arabic.
