The GIA (the Gemological Institute of America) has launched GIA Source Verification Service (SVS), and has been receiving polished diamonds for inspection from “leading diamond manufacturers since early July,” according toRough & Polished.


GIA-graded diamonds with verified source country information “will be available as the first submissions are returned and as more manufacturers join the program,” according to the report. The GIA will add lab-grown diamonds to the service “in the near future.”


Right now, “only polished natural diamonds with verified source documentation, including Kimberley Process certificates and invoices, from vetted manufacturers are eligible for the verification service.”


In other related news, the GIA plans to open a lab in Dubai for the first time. The lab will open in mid-2023 and will offer its services “to over 1,150 diamond companies at the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC),” according to IDEX Online.
