How Does World Trade
Custom Golds work?

01. Are you appointment only?

We are able to offer you a personalized service either in-person or online. Whatever your vision is for your custom piece, we can help bring this vision to life. We’ve teamed up with vetted diamond wholesalers and setting manufacturers to bring you the best prices possible. World Trade Custom Golds fulfills the order and handles all the customer service to ensure you have the best shopping experience. We also guarantee that you get exactly what you’ve ordered or your money back (with the exception of our grillz).

02. Do you have colored stones or diamond alternatives listed?

Yes, we have access to colored stones although diamonds are our specialty. We have both natural and lab grown diamonds in the D-K color range listed on our site.

03. Can World Trade Custom Golds help me design a custom piece of jewelry?

Depending on the style, intricacy and accents requested for the setting, we may be able to create a custom design for you. Reach out to a gem specialist in chat to discuss your idea and make an appointment.

04. Do all lab-grown diamonds from World Trade Custom Golds come with a physical grading report?

IGI and GCAL-graded lab-grown diamonds come with a paper copy of the grading report. GIA-graded lab-grown diamonds have a digital copy of the grading report accessible on their report lookup page. If you purchase a GIA-graded lab-grown diamond, it will be laser inscribed on the girdle, and your receipt will show the report number for easy lookup and printing.

05. What is the difference between lab-grown diamonds and natural mined diamonds? Can you tell them apart?

Easy answer, mined (natural diamonds) are grown by the Earth over billions of years and lab-grown diamonds are grown by professionals in a machine. Both are chemically and physically identical, with the same optical properties, and it would take a trained professional with expensive, high-tech equipment to tell them apart. Please feel free to schedule an appointment with us if you would like to learn more.

06. What is the quality of the jewelry sold on World Trade Custom Golds?

We take pride in our manufacturing process and stand behind it every step of the way. Our manufacturers work hard to ensure they produce the highest quality jewelry. All of our jewelry is crafted using the highest quality materials and is inspected several times throughout the manufacturing process and before it ships out to you. Our diamonds and gems are GIA grade stones.
