All Ritani lab-grown diamonds come with a grading certificate so you can be certain of their quality. Ritani’s lab-grown diamonds are graded by the world’s leading diamond laboratories such as the GIA, IGI, GCAL, Diamond Foundry, GSI, and HRD.
The GIA (Gemological Institute of America) is considered the gold standard for diamond grading. The agency grades both natural and lab diamonds. The GIA only offers digital versions of its lab-grown diamond grading reports.
Here is a sample lab-grown diamond grading report:
Diamond Shape and Measurements (Top Left)
In the top left of your report, you’ll find the date your diamond was graded, its shape, measurements, cutting style, and GIA report number, which is inscribed on the girdle of your diamond.
Diamond Proportions (top right)
The diamond’s table percentage and depth percentage are listed here. Good table and depth percentages are needed for a sparkling diamond.

GCAL (Gem Certification & Assurance Lab) was founded in 2001 and is located in New York City’s diamond district. These reports are unique as they include an optical brilliance analysis and an optical symmetry analysis. GCAL’s mission is to protect consumers from fraud by providing them with accurate information about their diamonds and gemstones.
Gemprint is unique to GCAL grading reports. It records your diamond’s “fingerprint” to help you identify your diamond. Gemprint can help you receive insurance discounts.
