Capital Coloured Diamonds only deals in coloured diamonds that are Gemological Institute of American (GIA) certified. This certification is a sign of quality in the coloured diamond industry. The GIA is a nonprofit institute that is incredibly well respected. Their mission is to offer protection to consumers in the gem buying industry. The GIA has established a rating system that is used to determine the quality of coloured diamonds. James Gagliardini is proud of this certification.
The GIA is the originator of the 4Cs standard for evaluating diamond quality. All of the coloured diamonds sold through Capital Coloured Diamonds have GIA ratings.
Cut: is responsible for establishing a diamond’s brilliance, sparkle, and fire. A diamond’s cut references its proportions, symmetry, and polish. The GIA grading system rates diamonds on a scale of D-Z, with D being the most perfect.
Clarity: defines a diamond’s absence of blemishes or inclusions. Internal birthmarks are called inclusions and external birthmarks are referred to as blemishes. Both appear due to the enormous pressure that is required to create a diamond. Diamonds that have no inclusions or blemishes are exceedingly rare. There are six quality grades that range from flawless (FL) to diamonds that posses obvious inclusions (I3).
Colour: the closer to colourlessness the greater the value. Of course this does not apply to coloured diamonds that fall outside of this particular colour range. Diamonds are assigned a colour rating of D-Z, with D representing colourless.
Carat Weight: refers to the diamond’s weight in metric carats. Accuracy and precision are crucial in weighing diamonds and GIA evaluators often measure diamonds to the hundred thousandths.
