The GIA iD100® uses advanced spectroscopic technology to distinguish natural diamonds from laboratory-grown (HPHT and CVD) diamonds and diamond simulants. The GIA iD100 can test colorless to near-colorless, green-to-blue and brown diamonds, as well as pink diamonds when used with the GIA iD100 Pink Diamond Software Upgrade.

The GIA DiamondCheck gives even more comprehensive results. It uses infrared technology to label tested stones as natural diamonds, treated or laboratory-grown diamonds or non-diamond material. These and other GIA instruments offer retailers and customers the peace-of-mind they desire when buying diamonds.
