When shopping for engagement rings, you’ll see the term “GIA Diamond” used to describe stones. A GIA diamond is simply a diamond that has been graded by GIA.

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is a nonprofit organization that conducts gemstone research, educates gemologists and sets standards for determining diamond quality. They are the pinnacle of diamond research in the world, and are completely independent of diamond sellers. One of the main functions of GIA is to grade diamonds. They established the 4 C’s of Diamond Quality, along with the scientific procedures for evaluating these quality factors.

A GIA Diamond has simply been graded by GIA, providing an accurate documentation of a diamond’s quality. GIA does not mine diamonds, nor does it buy, sell or trade them commercially.  It doesn’t appraise diamonds and is not otherwise involved in diamond pricing or valuation.  GIA operates independently of these commercial interests, ensuring that it’s diamond quality assessments are completely objective and unbiased.  .

It is highly recommended to choose a diamond that has been graded by GIA, especially when buying a diamond online. This will allow you to feel confident about what you’re purchasing even without seeing the diamond in person.

To find out if a stone has been graded by GIA, simply ask for the grading report. To ensure authenticity, the organization offers a report check.
