GIA reports are given to diamonds or any gemstones that have gone through the rigorous grading system by the Gemology Institute of America. They are reports that come in the form of certificates that clearly state the quality of the stone or diamond, based on the 4 C's. The 4 factors being evaluated are the cut, clarity, color and carat. The Gemology Institute of America is a non-profit and are know for having very strict grading. This is because they are a non-profit group, which means they gain nothing from evaluating your diamond at a higher grade (which would cost you more). Which is great because if you are a new consumer to buying diamonds, you know that if you have a GIA evaluation, that it is accurate and you are getting exactly what you are paying for.
