Frequently Asked Questions

How many loose pearls can I submit for a single report?

Up to 10 related loose pearls may be submitted per report. Loose pearls must be visually related to each other (i.e., similar colors, shapes, sizes, etc.). GIA will not offer grades for individual pearls on this report if a group was submitted. Each group will receive a single classification designation in each grading category. For reference, having a few lower-quality pearls in a group will bring the whole group grade down.
