Can lab-grown diamonds be certified?
Yes, lab-grown diamonds can and should be certified.
All diamonds should go through a grading process that considers the 4Cs, no matter their origin. The 4Cs contribute to a diamond’s overall value and serve as the standard across all jewelers and grading agencies.

Symmetry refers to how closely the same kind of facets is proportionate. Like Star Facets should all be perfectly identical, they should all match up and look similar.
Fluorescence means the diamond has a Milky or Cloudy inclusion which makes the diamond looks dull in natural light. Even if that Diamond does not have any Flaws in it, that is a Diamond with white Color and an Excellent Cut. The diamond will glow when kept under UV light.
