In 2006, GIA issued a 5-grade, proportion-based quality system for round brilliant colorless diamonds for the first time. This new scheme relies upon a 2-dimensional system to determine a grade. As a result, GIA lab reports not only include the usual crown and pavilion angles but also lower girdle and star facet information.

This is why when we select our asscher cut diamonds, we find it is essential to hand pick each one for perfect optics to ensure right level of brightness and fire in the diamond. This way we can weed out diamonds like the stone on the left, which sound rather good based on the information in the GIA lab report, but in practise disappoint when you inspect them with your eyes.It is an investment for when you really need the money fast! (If you do not have the GIA report with you , you can always refer to the laser inscripted registry number printed on the diamond and check it on the Internet at the GIA lab report)I can state this case's history in a few sentences. All I tell below is in evidence except the 1994 GIA lab report. We were not allowed to admit it because GIA failed to appear to defend its report.Lot 37: Ladies “PLAT” Scott Kay Diamond Engagement Ring. Diamond 1.20ct, Color F, Clarity SI2. Center stone accented with four (4) square brilliant cut diamonds, estimated weight to be 0.20ct, Color F-G, Clarity VS1-SI1 *Stone documented in GIA Lab Report CZ manufacturers also make colored stones — which may be passed off as fancy diamonds. Colored diamonds are extremely rare in nature and very costly. When insuring colored diamonds, use every means possible to be sure they are natural diamond — not CZ or other imitation, not synthetic (which are worth less than natural), and not low-quality color-treated diamonds. For fancy colored diamond, insist on a GIA lab report to verify the gem's quality. The girdle is the line which appears between the upper and lower halves of a diamond. There are several different ways to finish out the girdle edge of a diamond, the easiest is to leave the diamond “bruted” which is the result of the bruting process which shapes the initial shape of a diamond before it is faceted. Basically two round brilliant cut diamonds are placed in a machine so that the girdle edges of the diamonds will rub against each other as they are spun in a circle and the result is a kind of satin finished edge as shown in the picture above. This particular diamond is also inscribed with the report number for the corresponding GIA lab report to assist with identification.
