Gia Anatomy

Anatomy of a Diamond

When grading a diamond the GIA takes into consideration the physical make up of the stone and the way it is cut. For a Round Brilliant Cut the GIA will look at the table, pavilion, culet, girdle and crown. Here you can see what part of the stone each of these terms relates to. Please note, all stones from Diamonds of Choice come with a laser inscription on the girdle. (Requires Flash)
