There are many gemstone certifying bodies across the world, let us compare two of the most prominent ones.
IGI certification determines the quality and authenticity of a gemstone or jewelry piece, encompassing the various treatments it’s gone through.
GIA certification includes visual inspection, gemological testing and analysis of a gemstone’s physical & chemical properties.
GIA’s reports focus on the 4Cs, whereas IGI’s reports provide an analysis of a jewel, including details of its fluorescence, polish and symmetry grades.
Both the prominent organizations use a similar methodology based on the 4Cs for grading diamonds.
GIA is generally considered a more prestigious and established institution, but relying on any of them is a matter of personal preference.
