GIA refers to Gemological Institute of America; it is considered a benchmark in the Jewelry industry and is accredited to be a prestigious facility where one can acquire immense knowledge in the diamond, gemstones, colored stones, jewelry design, CAD design categories. GIA training sets us apart in the Diamond Buying industry tremendously. For starters, knowing the accurate grading of a Diamond for example: Color and Clarity can have a potential increase in value, compared to other Diamonds. GIA reports are highly recommended by our buyers. It can help determine the value when buying and selling as well as assure a long-term value should you decide to hold on to your diamond for a long time.
