Buying a diamond engagement ring for your big day is a big decision. But how do you know what you are getting is what you are paying for? That’s where your chosen diamond’s grading report certified by a reputed gemological laboratory can help.
You will find various global grading laboratories creating a variety of grading reports. However, the only one you should rely on, which incidentally is also the best of the lot, is by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). GIA was responsible for establishing the international grading standards, which all laboratories across the globe use now.
GIA Diamonds – What Are They?
In the diamond industry, the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) represents reliability, authenticity and integrity. No wonder people involved in this industry consider it the most respected laboratory that acts as a dependable source of information for them.
Since this non-profit organization is known worldwide for its highest standards of reliable, unbiased and precise grading reports, the industry considers diamonds graded by it to be the most highly valued gems.
The GIA Certification – What It Entails?
A team of gemologists work to evaluate the 4Cs (cut, clarity, carat and colour) to create a GIA diamond grading report. These trained professionals use specific tools to examine the diamond and study the ratios of its clarity, dimensions, symmetry, polish, colour and other elements before deciding its grade. Automatic assessment for clarity (with rating on a plot chart of inclusions) is done for any diamond weighing more than 1.0 carat. The grading report for round diamonds also features a cut grade.
