Anyone relying on the information on this website or on a Diamond Evolution certificate is subject to these general terms and conditions.
A Laboratory Grown Diamond (LGD) has essentially the same chemical, physical, and optical properties as a naturally-mined diamond, except for being a manufactured product grown by man.

CERTIFICATES ARE NEITHER A GUARANTEED VALUATION, NOR APPRAISAL OF ANY GEMSTONE(S) DESCRIBED THEREIN, INCLUDING GRADE, COLOUR AND/OR OTHER CHARACTERISTICS. A CERTIFICATE DESCRIBES ONLY AN OPINION BY CGL ON AN ITEM FOLLOWING THE RESULTS OF SERVICES PERFORMED BY CGL ON THE ITEM, USING EQUIPMENT POSSESSED BY CGL AND TECHNIQUES KNOWN TO CGL AT THE TIME OF EXAMINATION OF THE ITEM BY CGL. OPINIONS MAY VARY AS TO THE CHARACTERISTICS COVERED IN THE CERTIFICATE DEPENDING ON WHEN, HOW AND BY WHOM THE ITEM WAS EXAMINED AND THE TECHNIQUES AND EQUIPMENT USED, WHICH MAY VARY.
NEITHER CGL NOR ITS EMPLOYEES OR SUBCONTRACTORS SHALL, AT ANY TIME, BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DIFFERENCE OF OPINION OR DISCREPANCY WHICH MAY RESULT FROM THE APPLICATION OF OTHER GRADING, ASSESSMENT AND/OR IDENTIFICATION METHODS, TOOLS OR TECHNIQUES. THE RESULTS OF ANOTHER EXAMINATION OF THE ARTICLE MAY VARY FROM THE CERTIFICATE BASED ON A VARIETY OF FACTORS.
NEITHER CGL NOR ANY OF ITS EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY LOSS, DAMAGE, COST OR EXPENSE RESULTING FROM OR CAUSED BY ANY ERROR IN OR OMISSION FROM THE CERTIFICATE, EVEN IF THE LOSS, DAMAGE, COST OR EXPENSE WAS CAUSED BY CGL OR ANY OF ITS EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS. IN ANY EVENT, CGL AND ITS EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY COMPENSATORY, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, STATUTORY AND/OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM OR CAUSED BY ANY ERROR IN OR OMISSION FROM, OR FOR THE ISSUANCE OF OR USE OF, THE CERTIFICATE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
