The GIA said in a statement that just 175 of the 1,042 diamonds discovered to have had their grading reports changed in a hacking case by the lab's Indian sub-contractor have been returned for examination to the lab. It is imperative that all of the diamonds and their reports be returned to GIA for examination to remove the fraudulently altered reports from the market. The diamond trade must hold those who would commit such fraudulent acts accountable for their actions. The cooperation of the trade is vital as GIA works to fully address this fraud.
