 GIA Diamond Grading Report

GIA Diamond Grading Report

Certified Diamonds

Diamonds should be certified by an independent, respected gemological laboratory such as: GIA, AGS, HRD, etc. The grade of any characteristic ultimately comes down to the opinion of the expert making the assessment. Labs try to make the process as accurate as possible by requiring that each stone be assessed by multiple graders. If a diamond is not certified, your only source of information about its quality is the seller


Bottom Line

Diamond certificates exist to protect you, the buyer!
Independent certification:

  • Verifies that the diamond is 100% natural

  • Assurance of a non-clarity enhanced diamond

  • Gives an experienced, third-party quality grading report

  • Allows you to comparison shop to get the best price

  • Adds value to the diamond
