75 years of gold, silver, and diamond knowledge


The DCLA was born out of the need for a International Diamond Council (IDC) standard Diamond Grading Laboratory in Australia. In 2001 after an in depth study into the Australian Diamond market, the founders realised that the IDC standard, which until then was only available in Antwerp, South Africa and Germany would be great benefit and a real asset to the Australian diamond and jewellery market.

It was out of this need that the DCLA was founded. The DCLA certificate is widely recognised as the Australian benchmark, and one of the most accurate and consistent grading laboratories worldwide.

DCLA can do all of this by being the most proficient state of the art laboratory in Australia, and the only laboratory that provides a full guarantee of its work.
