In every corner of the world, diamonds have been described using the GIA-developed 4Cs (colour, cut, clarity and carat weight) of diamond quality and the International Diamond Grading System™ for several decades. Today, digital technology plays an important role for many businesses, which is why GIA recently introduced the GIA Diamond Focus Report™, a low-cost digital report for natural, D-to-Z colour, round brilliant-cut diamonds weighing between 0.15 and 0.39 carats. Information included in the report comes from the same standards and processes used for all other GIA report services.

The Diamond Focus Report includes information on the 4Cs, as well as a polish and symmetry grade with a fluorescence description. Laser inscription of the GIA report number is included. The results provided in a Diamond Focus Report are available through GIA’s online Report Check and can be downloaded from the GIA’s website at GIA.edu.

“GIA’s mission is to serve the gem and jewellery industry and its consumers through unbiased, third-party reports and services. The GIA Diamond Focus Report is an important step in this endeavour. The service is available for diamonds between 0.15 and 0.39 carats, which is a popular size range in India, the Middle East and China,” said Nirupa Bhatt, managing director of GIA in India and Middle East. “Diamonds graded using this cost-effective service go through the same rigorous process as all other GIA services, such as the Diamond Grading Report and Diamond Dossier.”

Not only is GIA considered a global authority on gemmology, it is also the world's trusted source for unbiased evaluation of gems. A GIA Diamond Grading Report gives a clear, comprehensive understanding of the 4Cs of diamond quality and other factors that determine its value.
