Established in 1931, GIA is the world’s largest and most respected nonprofit
institute of gemological research.
Conceived 73 years ago in the august tradition of Europe’s most venerated
institutes, GIA discovers (through GIA Research), imparts (through
GIA Education), and applies (through the GIA Gem Laboratory and GIA Gem
Instruments) gemological knowledge to ensure the public trust in gems and
With nearly 900 employees, the Institute’s scientists,
diamond graders, and educators are regarded, collectively, as the
world's foremost authority in gemology.
What is GIA's history?
A: GIA is the creator of
the famous 4Cs of diamond value (color, clarity, cut, and carat weight). It
is also the corporate birthplace of the International Diamond
Grading System™. Today, GIA’s D-Z color-grading scale and GIA’s
Flawless–I3 clarity-grading scale are recognized by virtually every
professional jeweler and savvy diamond buyer in the world.
Internationally, the Institute has distinguished itself as the
preeminent source of gemological knowledge and professionalism. By
extension, the GIA Diamond Grading Report and the GIA Diamond Dossier are
considered the world's premier gemological credentials. Diamonds of all
shapes and sizes are sent to the Institute from every corner
of the globe for analysis and grading.
Some of the more celebrated stones graded by GIA include: the Hope
Diamond (45.52 carats), the Steinmetz Pink (59.60 carats), the Taylor-Burton
Diamond (69.42 carats), the Allnatt (101.29 carats), the De
Beers Millennium Star (203.04 carats), the Centenary Diamond (273.85
carats), and the Incomparable Diamond (407.48 carats).
GIA is also where the White House and Congress have turned
for definitive answers. It is where the bibles of gemology are quite
literally written. And where the largest gem and jewelry
library in the world is housed.
can I be sure I am getting that Diamond I ordered?
A: Each Diamond of one carat or larger
is accompanied with a Gemological Institute of America Certificate assuring
that grading is done by GIA standards.
