As diamond experts, LEEDS & SONS FINE JEWELERS advises all diamonds over 1 carat be GIA certified. The Gemological Institute of America, or GIA, is a nonprofit institute dedicated to research and education in the field of gemology and jewelry arts. A GIA Diamond Grading Report includes an assessment of the four C’s — color, clarity, cut, and carat weight — along with a plotted diagram of the stone’s clarity characteristics and a graphic representation of its proportions. GIA is the world’s leading grading laboratory.
