(CARLSBAD, Calif.) - GIA (Gemological Institute of America) has announced that its 4Cs application (app), released last year for the iPad, is now available for iPhone. The free app educates and engages consumers about the 4Cs (Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat weight) of diamond quality through videos and interactive tools.
The app explains GIA’s grading scales, how diamond grades affect value, the origins of the carat system, information on fluorescence, diamond treatments and synthetics, as well as a “My Diamond Wish List” for consumers. The app also features direct access to GIA Report Check, a secure online database of GIA grading reports.
Plans are underway for the app to be accessible on additional smartphone devices.
The free GIA 4Cs app for iPhone and iPad are available in English and Simplified Chinese, and are downloadable on iTunes. Visit GIA at www.gia.edu.
