About the GIA Diamond eReport
The new GIA Diamond eReport - GIA's first digital-only report - delivers GIA's trusted diamond quality evaluation in a fully protected online environment that eliminates the need for printed documents, allowing both buyers and sellers to quickly and conveniently share the important information they need to conduct their transactions with confidence.
Only Untreated, Natural Diamonds Qualify
You can be sure about your diamond's quality right from the start. Every GIA eReport diamond has been tested to determine that it is not a simulant or synthetic, and that it is free from any detectable treatments used to alter its color or clarity. And like all diamonds graded by GIA, you can be sure that your eReport diamond has undergone the very rigorous and impartial evaluation processes that GIA is known for.
Let the Picture Tell the Story
The GIA Diamond eReport features a highly detailed face-up diamond image, with a zoom feature that allows you to see its identifying clarity characteristics and some of the symmetry features.
The diamond image is captured during the grading process using the GIA Diamond Imaging System™, a proprietary technology developed by GIA researchers and laboratory gemologists. The system captures a high resolution image under tightly controlled conditions designed to efficiently deliver a consistent rendering of the diamond. This image, in addition to the data points GIA already captures during grading are permanently stored in GIA's secure global database, thus ensuring perpetual access to the diamond's information and identification.
The image on the GIA Diamond eReport is displayed as a compressed JPEG, to allow for easy sharing via email, online, and mobile devices. The image brings the diamond's unique properties to life, making the GIA Diamond eReport the perfect way to instantly communicate its quality, particularly without the presence of a physical stone.
It is important to keep in mind that the image on the GIA Diamond eReport cannot be used to evaluate or confirm the diamond's color grade. The image is intended to be used to document the face-up appearance of the diamond under controlled conditions and lighting. This set-up produces images that identify the diamond's unique clarity characteristics as well as some of its proportion and symmetry features. Facet patterns observed in the image are the result of the diamond's size and proportions in relation to the controlled imaging set-up and may not be the same as seen under other lighting and viewing conditions.
