Reading Your GIA Report

While a diamond is given as an expression of love or to celebrate a special occasion, it also represents a major investment in time and money. In order to be absolutely certain of what you're buying, it's important to receive a GIA grading report, such as the GIA Diamond Grading Report or a GIA Diamond Dossier®. These reports represent the most respected and impartial assessment of diamond's quality and authenticity.

GIA's diamond grading procedures are designed to be extremely accurate. Each diamond is subjected to the scrutiny and analysis of the Institute's expert diamond graders and gemologists. Each diamond grading report details the Institute's authoritative assessment of the 4Cs - color, clarity, cut, and carat weight.

All GIA diamond grading reports contain a hologram, background screen, and other security features that not only meet industry guidelines, but exceed them. Since GIA is not affiliated with any retailer, wholesaler, or manufacturer, you know that your GIA report represents the impartial opinion of unbiased professionals.

You can learn more about the wealth of information contained in your diamond grade report by clicking on one of the links below. Don't forget that your retail diamond jeweler is uniquely qualified to advise you on the importance of the features discussed in your GIA Report.
