The Gemological Institute of America’s grading lab has introduced the Diamond Focus Report, a new digital-only report for smaller diamonds that costs around $20.
The reports will be issued for natural D-to-Z color round brilliants, weighing between 0.15 cts. and 0.29 cts. They will be issued with a GIA laser inscription with their report number. The results can be seen with GIA’s online Report Check; no printed report is issued.
The report service costs $20 for diamonds between 0.15 and 0.22 cts. and $22 for diamonds between 0.23 and 0.29 cts. GIA’s laboratories in Bangkok; Carlsbad, Calif.; Hong Kong; Mumbai; New York City; and Tokyo are now offering the service; other locations will join later.
This is not the GIA’s sole digital-only report: It also offers the GIA Diamond eReport.
