● Understanding the GIA reports
When you ask for GIA certification, it means that your loose diamond or diamond jewelry is accommodated by a GIA diamond grading certificate. A GIA certificate is added to a graded GIA diamond showing the most important quality features and characteristics of your loose diamond. GIA Certificates are fairly easy to understand and read, once you have gained sufficient knowledge through your diamond education. With a GIA diamond certificate, you will have an overview of the carat weight, cut, color and diamond clarity. Additionally, a number of other essential diamond features are assessed such at polish, symmetry, measurements and fluorescence. A unique GIA diamond code inscription located on the girdle links the loose diamond to the specific GIA diamond certificate. The laser inscription can only be seen only under 10x magnification.
