You hear a lot about GIA Certified stones. What does that mean?
The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) evaluates gemstones on the basis of their weight, shape, measurement, cut, color and clarity. They perform a thorough analysis and scrutinize whether the gemstones are natural, treated or synthetic. The GIA certification confirms the authenticity and quality of a gem.
