New GIA Report

New 2014 GIA Report

Looks like the GIA is finally releasing their new report format.  They attempted it in 2013 as well, but just before launch they pulled them for some reason.

I have a few stones at the GIA right now, will post up photos of the new report(s) when I get the batch back.

They are adding a QR code to the reports, so you can easily look-up the details online.  Of course with every new generation of report they have added some new security features, hopefully to keep one step ahead of counterfeits.

I always hate when new report formats come out, because everyone wants the ‘new’ report.  I don’t know if stones with ‘old’ reports start trading at a discount, but I’ve seen dealers turn their nose up at old report formats after a change.
