GIA Drops Fees on Synthetics Screening

Gemological Institute of America has dropped fees on its screening services for smaller diamonds to check if they are treated or synthetic. 

The service screens parcels of D-to-Z diamonds and colored diamonds up to 0.2 ct.

The new fee structure reduces the existing per-stone fee from $12 to $10 for diamonds between 0.06 and 0.2 ct. and to $5 for diamonds 0.05 ct. and smaller.
