The Gemological Institute of America is now offering a new Jewelry Report service via a pilot program.
Carlsbad, Calif.—The Gemological Institute of America has launched a pilot program for its new Jewelry Report service.

The report will give details about the piece’s components, including the metal, gemstone characteristics, and existing engravings.

“This service is an extension of GIA’s ongoing commitment to ensure consumer confidence and trust in jewelry,” said Tom Moses, GIA executive vice president and chief laboratory officer.

The pilot service caters to those who need grading information on mounted jewelry.

The description in the report will include metal verification and ranges for the clarity, color, and estimated carat weight of D-to-Z diamonds that don’t already have GIA reports for unmounted diamonds. The jewelry report will also include details of any current markings.

For diamonds that have existing GIA report numbers, the specific grades will be detailed on the report with a link to GIA's Report Check for additional verification.

GIA issued diamond grading reports for mounted diamonds until the late 1970s, the organization said, with the appropriate grade ranges stated. For current diamond grading reports, the gemstones must be unmounted.

GIA does examine finished jewelry, it said, though those examinations fall with its gemstone identification and pearl services and focus on the gemological examination of the gems in the jewelry pieces.

The jewelry report service is not currently available for colored gemstone jewelry.

The new service aligns with GIA's mission to protect consumers and uphold the integrity of the gem and jewelry industry, said the organization.

Add-on services include new engravings and a 360-degree video of the jewelry, which are available for an additional fee.

Report numbers for the GIA Jewelry Report will be alphanumeric to provide unique and secure identification for each piece.

Those interested in the pilot program can sign up here for the waitlist.
