It’s easy to fall in love with the sparkle of a diamond. But don’t you want to know exactly what you’re buying? Then insist that your diamond comes with a 3rd party grading report from an independent, unbiased and qualified gemological laboratory like GIA. GIA is nonprofit, independent and dedicated to protecting the public trust in diamond and gemstone jewelry.
As the creator of the world-famous 4Cs of diamond quality – color, cut, clarity, and carat weight – and the International Diamond Grading System™ used worldwide, GIA goes to great lengths to guarantee the highest level of integrity and professionalism. One way they do this is by making sure that each diamond goes through the grading process at GIA anonymously. The graders who examine the diamond don’t know who its owner is, which ensures that the grading outcome isn’t influenced by this information. GIA is a qualified lab with highly trained gemologists using the latest equipment to provide accurate assessments. An unbiased grading report from GIA is the best way to know your diamond’s authenticity and quality.
A good jeweler will be happy to help you understand the 4Cs – since a diamond’s price is directly impacted by its 4Cs grading – as well as provide an independent grading report to verify the diamond’s quality characteristics. By asking the right questions now, you’ll be able to make the most informed purchase, ensuring your satisfaction for many years to come.
