GIA and EGL certification protects our customers’ diamonds by establishing gem quality, objectively.
Etablished in 1931, the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, colored stones, and pearls. GIA exists to protect all purchasers of gemstones, by providing the education, laboratory services, research, and instruments needed to accurately and objectively determine gemstone quality.As a nonprofit institute, GIA’s mission is to ensure the public trust in gems and jewelry by upholding the highest standards of integrity, academics, science, and professionalism. GIA attained its leadership role through decades of integrity and ingenuity, and everything we do at BuySellLoan is driven by GIA’s mission
