The GIA Diamond Origin Report: Diamond Traceability Based on Science
Quote:
Consumers now, more than ever, have a heightened awareness of sustainably and ethically sourced products. The GIA Diamond Origin Report uses scientific evaluation to provide confirmation of a diamond’s geographic origin. Origin information for a diamond helps you distinguish between natural and laboratory-grown diamonds and deliver a strong message on the good mined diamonds do for the country they come from. Proof of a diamond’s origin provides the peace-of-mind a consumer needs before they purchase and you can use this origin information as a way to build trust and credibility with your customers.
Service Components

Diamond Origin Report service includes:

A printed report containing GIA’s full, authoritative 4Cs grading assessment, including plotted diagram of the polished diamond
Confirmation of the diamond’s geographic origin, with the country clearly stated on the report
Inscription of report number on the diamond’s girdle for added security and identification
Enhanced Report Check features such as full-color digital images of the diamond in its rough and polished state, as well as an image-rich story of the diamond’s country of origin

Diamond Origin and GIA's Scientific Matching

As the world leader in gemological research, GIA is uniquely able to leverage over 60 years of scientific knowledge and technology to deliver the rough-to-polish matching confirmation for polished stones. GIA collects data and images for rough analysis. Once GIA receives the polished diamond, GIA uses markers and data identified during the analysis of the rough to scientifically match the polished diamond to its original rough, confirming the diamond’s country of origin.
Connecting the Diamond Supply Chain

GIA’s Diamond Origin Service brings added transparency to the diamond supply chain. By connecting participating miners, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, the service ensures that expertly graded natural diamonds whose countries of origin have been scientifically confirmed, reach the end consumer.

Why am I skeptical? (Actually, why would I not me skeptical?)

Doesn't it seem that the "scientific method" should be pier reviewed and publicly presented?
