When buying diamonds from Padis Jewelry, you can feel confident you are getting what you paid for as every diamond over 0.40 carats comes with an independent grading report that assesses the overall quality and authenticity. Our diamonds are graded at the most trusted and accredited diamond grading laboratories in the industry including the US division of AGS, Forevermark, and GIA.
To give you an idea of what you will see in your diamond’s grading report, you can take a look at a sample GIA grading report on their website. According to the GIA, their reports represent the “highest standard of reliability, consistency and integrity.” Your report will include information on the 4Cs (the GIA is the creator of the 4Cs) of your stone and assess the Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight. You will also get a plotted diagram charting the clarity characteristics as well as a graphic representation of the stone’s proportions.
If your diamond is in the D-to-Z color range, your report will also have a GIA Cut grade. The Diamond Cut grade describes the “components of brightness, fire, scintillation, polish, and symmetry, as well as weight and durability concerns, into a single overall grade for cut quality for standard round brilliants.”
Another service offered by the GIA is their “Report Check” that allows you to confirm that the information on your report matches the archived GIA report database. All you need to do is to enter your report number on their online search tool. Also if you have a diamond you want to have authenticated and graded by the GIA Lab, you can submit it to them for a fee.
