Origin Tracking

GIA announced it is developing “GIA Source Verify”, a service aimed at retailers and consumers, to be launched in the near future, using “third-party verified documents, such as KP certificates and invoices”, to provide “reliable diamond origin information”. Although apart from a landing page, not much information on the process behind the service is yet available, it seems GIA will be focusing on a (digital) paper trail rather than technology for the information it will include in Source Verify, which will be made available for consumers at no additional cost. GIA already has its Diamond Origin Report service, which uses in-depth rough analysis of original rough stones and comparative analyses as the rough is transformed to confirm the stone’s country of origin.
