The graceful and glittering stone is also known to enhance men’s looks. Diamonds come studded in men’s watches, bracelets and also earrings.

Confusion regarding the quality of diamonds is no big issue at Marlow’s if it is a Gemmological Institute of America (GIA) certified diamond. GIA, a specialist institute that studies and performs research in the field of gemmology, certifies diamonds looking at their overall quality. Diamonds are sent to laboratories for evaluation where they undergo certification; each certificate issued is uniquely numbered, most of the diamonds being laser inscribed with the certificate number on the girdle fo the diamond itself. This valuable certificate informs the buyer of the quality as promised. So, GIA certified diamonds should be preferred over the ones with none or “generic” certified ones which rarely hold value.
