Q: What is GIA?
A: 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 jewelry.
With nearly 900 employees, the Institute’s scientists, diamond graders, and educators are regarded, collectively, as the world's foremost authority in gemology.

Q: 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.

Q: How 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.
