Once your diamond is GIA certified there will rarely be a question as to the diamond’s quality.  GIA’s grading is far more accurate and respected in the diamond business compared to other gem labs.  With some exceptions, we can regularly make you an offer and buy your diamond based on the GIA report alone, without first seeing the diamond. Certifying your diamond with GIA is well worth the money.  GIA’s schedule of fees can be found at www.gia.edu.
