GIA Launches Proprietary Cut Program For Grading Reports
Gemological Institute of America (GIA) laboratory clients can now participate in GIA’s Proprietary Cut Program for diamonds with branded cut names. GIA grading reports for diamonds submitted as part of this programme will include the branded name of the proprietary diamond cut above the diamond shape and cutting style description.
Clients who would like to participate in this programme will be required to provide supporting documentation, including diamond facet arrangement. Only clients who have completed the documentation will be able to submit diamonds as part of this programme. For more information or to apply for this programme, clients should contact their client services representative. This enhancement to diamond grading report services is offered at no additional charge. The Proprietary Cut Program includes branded cut names on GIA grading reports for diamonds. In the image, the sample proprietary cut name is listed above the shape and cutting style description. ‘CENTAURI CUT’ is not an actual proprietary cut; it is included only as an illustration.
