Frequently Asked Questions

What is a laser inscription and is it important?

GIA uses laser technology to microscopically inscribe a personal message, symbol, logo or your diamond’s unique GIA report number on the diamond’s girdle. The inscription is not visible to the naked eye, but can be viewed under 10× magnification. Laser inscription can help to help quickly and easily identify a diamond, and can be used as a way to commemorate an event or express a sentiment.
