E.G.L. - The European Gemological Laboratory:

EGL Grading CertificateE.G.L. provides a detail diamond report. The E.G.L. certification does provide more proportion information than the G.I.A. diamond report by including the important pavilion and crown angles in their diamond report. Be aware that plots of internal and external blemishes on E.G.L. certifications are much less detailed than G.I.A. or A.G.S. quality reports. Many diamonds under one carat in size are certified by E.G.L. due to the benefit of lower cost and faster service. E.G.L. also provides a economically priced miniature version of its full certification. E.G.L. Certified Diamond Reports provide this information:
