Founded in 1903, Lazare Kaplan International Inc. has become the premier diamond - cutting company in the world. Its tradition of excellence gives those who buy a Lazare Diamond the confidence that they have made the finest choice. The owner of a Lazare Diamond® possesses not only “The world’s most beautiful diamond®” but also a share in one of the richest traditions in the diamond world.

Ideal cut Lazare Diamonds radiate a brilliance you can see. But there’s also something brilliant that’s invisible to the naked eye. Using Lazare Kaplan’s patented laser technology, every Lazare Diamond .18 carats and larger has the Lazare logo and an individual identification number specially laser inscribed on its circumference. The logo is your proof of authenticity as an ideal cut Lazare Diamond, and the unique number is your proof of ownership in case of loss or theft. The inscription is visible only under 10-power magnification and does not affect the clarity grade of the diamond.
