London Diamond Bourse Announces Report Checker
Further to the GIA’s statement last week notifying the diamond trade of 1,042 invalidated grading reports, the London Diamond Bourse has prepared a simple report checker which will easily flag any stones that should be sent to GIA for further examination.
The London Diamond Bourse is happy to share its checker with members of the diamond trade on request, its Chief Operating Officer, Victoria MacKay said.
The GIA announced last week that it invalidated grading reports for 1,042 diamonds submitted primarily to its grading laboratory in India. An outside party who gained unauthorized remote access to the GIA’s grading information database altered the reports. The list of invalidated reports is available on the GIA's website.
