Regardless of how knowledgeable you may be, buying wholesale diamonds can leave you with numerous questions about the authenticity and quality of the diamonds you plan to buy. To answer all your questions and confusion, independent gemology organizations, like the GIA provide certifications to loose diamonds, marking them for their quality, carat and other details.

What is GIA diamond certification?

GIA or the Gemological Institute of America is a non-profit organization dedicated to research and education in the field of gemology. Established in the year 1931, GIA has become a widely trusted and reputed authority in the global diamond industry. In 1953, the GIA grading system was accepted worldwide for grading diamonds. Diamonds with GIA certification are the most trusted diamonds for sale and purchase all around the globe.

Which details does the GIA report provide?

The GIA checks every loose diamond for its quality and provides a detailed report with information about that particular diamond.

  • The report includes information on the 4Cs (carat, cut, color and clarity) of the diamond.

  • It also mentions whether the diamond has been treated to improve its appearance or not.

  • It grades the diamond on its polish and symmetry.

  • The GIA report has a unique number, which is also microscopically inscribed within the stone to prevent fraud. This inscribed number is printed on the GIA certificate.

Why is GIA certification important?

When you shop for wholesale loose diamonds, it is necessary to cross-check whether the diamond is worth the money that the seller asks for. How would you evaluate whether the seller is sharing the right details about the diamond’s carat, cut, color and clarity?

For this, you need to ask for the GIA certification of the diamond you buy. This is the only way to know a fair price for each stone. Also, the diamonds with GIA certification have a higher resale value since this is an official document that can be used to prove the worth of the diamond.

While buying wholesale diamonds, you should filter the loose diamonds based on whether they have a GIA certification or not. You should verify the GIA certification number through the GIA website to identify whether the diamond is the right one or not.
