Evolving from deep inside earth’s layers, diamonds are formed after many years at extreme temperatures and pressures. Although, most loved and praised in their colorless form, diamonds come in a spectrum of hues, including pink, yellow, blue black, and others, which are more commonly referred to as fancy diamonds. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) implemented a grading system to evaluate diamonds, based on four aspects; Cut, clarity, color and carat weight. You may hear about other appraisal institutions such as EGL or AGS, but GIA is the most accurate and valued.
