GIA, creator of the 4Cs and International Diamond Grading System™, is an independent organization with a mission to protect the public trust in gems through laboratory services, education programs and research discoveries.

The 4Cs app features video and interactive tools that teach how GIA grades diamonds using the 4Cs. The app explains the GIA grading scales for color, clarity, and cut, and how diamond grades can affect value. The app also explains the origins of the carat system, and provides information about fluorescence, diamond treatments and synthetics.

Using these interactive tools, consumers can explore:

How diamond color changes across the GIA D-to-Z Color Scale
Typical inclusions and blemishes at various points in the GIA Clarity Scale
A diamond’s anatomy and how various parameters influence a diamond’s cut grade
How a diamond’s size changes by carat weight and compare the sizes of different diamonds
