In mid-March, the Gemological Institute of America will introduce a revamped website as well as a revised standard for gem grading and identification reports.
With the enhanced GIA Report Check service, laboratory clients will have secure online access to their GIA identification and grading reports. Online users will also have access to the archive of Gems & Gemology, the Institute’s award-winning, peer-reviewed professional journal.
The new gem grading reports will consume less paper and other materials, as well as offer enhanced security features.
“We are excited to share what we have learned and developed in GIA’s eight decades of public service in this new and engaging way,” Donna Baker, GIA’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “These advances are the next steps in our continuous effort to serve the global public by bringing the fascinating world of gems, gemology and jewelry to people all around the world and helping to ensure their trust in gems and jewelry.”
