Press Release: In order to be more compliant with the market standard, while maintaining the highest-quality grading standards that  HRD Antwerp is known for, HRD Antwerp decided to adjust the proportion parameters of the cut grade. The following changes will become effective July 14, 2014.
Adjustments that will benefit your business!
The HRD Antwerp Cut Grade is based on symmetry, proportion and polish. The most important change within the adjusted cut grade encompasses a revision of the proportion parameter. Whereas, previously a diamond was graded "very good" on proportion, it is now possible for certain diamonds to achieve "excellent," increasing the possibility to obtain an overall triple excellent grade.

New! "Cut Update" service

The new Cut Update Service (KM) provides an "excellent" opportunity to recheck your diamonds in order to possibly obtain a better grading.  The cost of this special service will be charged regardless of the outcome of the recheck.
