Many companies offer their own diamond certificates, produced in-house by resident gemologists. While they will use the same grading scale as the GIA, an in-house certificate represents an opinion and is very much dependant on the skill of the grading gemologist. They can also be somewhat biased, as the company grading the diamond is also selling the stone, so it’s more likely to present it in the best light possible. The GIA does not sell diamonds and is the worldwide diamond authority. It created the grading scale which is the industry standard, and is widely regarded as the most stringent grading laboratory in the world.
