What is a GIA diamond?
A GIA diamond is a term used to describe diamonds that have been graded by GIA. Using scientific procedures, GIA diamond experts asses the diamond’s 4 Cs — colour, clarity, cut and carat weight — to give an accurate insight into the quality of the stone.
It is important to note that GIA does not mine, buy, sell or trade diamonds commercially. It neither appraises diamonds and is not otherwise involved in diamond pricing or valuation. GIA operates independently of these commercial interests to ensure that its diamond quality assessments are objective and unbiased.
GIA-graded diamonds provide an extra layer of protection for buyers, in that the grading reports will provide a clear depiction of the diamond’s quality. In this way, you will know exactly what you are paying for — and if the diamond is a wise investment.
