Diamond Certificates

At Inter-Continental Jewelers(ICJ) we considered the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) Diamond Grading Report the premier credential of a diamond’s authenticity and quality. Therefore when you order a loose diamond with Inter-Continental Jewelers(ICJ), we ship it to you with the accompanying GIA diamond grading report (also called a diamond certificate). The GIA Diamond Grading Report includes an assessment of a diamond’s 4Cs - colorclaritycut, and carat weight- along with a plotted diagram of its clarity characteristics and a graphic representation of the diamond’s proportions. For standard round brilliant cut diamonds falling in the D-to-Z color range, the report also includes a GIA Cut grade.

A laser inscription at the Diamond’s gridle serves as a secure identifying feature, which links the diamond to its specific report data. Viewable under 10× magnification with a simple jeweler’s loupe, the inscribed report number can be matched to the diamond’s physical GIA Report Check, a report number laser inscription is automatically applied to all GIA’s diamond’s grading details.

The GIA laboratory issues diamond grading reports for loose, natural diamonds in the D-to-Z color range that weigh 0.15 carats or more. Making it very expensive to replace a diamond grading report. Because of this, we require each diamond grading report to be included with each returned diamond. If you do not include the diamond grading report with your return, you will be charged a replacement fee of US $220 & up depending on size of diamond (or equivalent amount in other currencies).
