HRD Graded Diamonds

The HRD Diamond Grading Lab is based in Belgium, and is well known and highly regarded in the European marketplace. The abbreviation HRD stands for "Hoge Raad Voor Diamant" in Flemish. In English this translates to "Diamond High Council." HRD’s color and clarity grading is strict, accurate, and consistent. It is therefore considered on par with GIA, but has limited name-recognition in the United States marketplace. HRD grades natural white diamonds in the D-Z color range as well as fancy natural colored diamonds.
