So, it’s finally that special time in your life when you’re ready to get married and are looking for an engagement ring. Somewhere along the way you’ve probably heard the term GIA diamond.
GIA stands for the Gemological Institute of America. This organization grades diamonds against its own test of quality so that you know exactly what you’re buying. A diamond having been graded by the non-profit organization does not attest to its superior quality or cause for a markup in price. It simply means that the diamond was examined by a professional and its quality ( which obviously directly correlates to its price) was recorded on what is called a GIA report.
