Fetch gemstone data from GIA/IGI

Modified on Sun, 28 Jan at 11:30 PM

  • Due to the GIA latest API and policy changes, direct fetch of the certificates' data is not available. Please reach out to us for more information and custom solution. 

Valigara integrates with GIA and IGI to fetch the available gemstone parameters and the certificate files. To run the integration, the gemstone has to have the certificate number in place. After the fetch, the certificate data and images are stored in the gemstone page.

To run the integration:

  1. Go to Inventory -> Gemstones
  2. Select the gemstones to update
  3. Click System Actions -> "Get data from external system"
  4. in the "Get data" pop-up:
  • System: select GIA/IGI
  • Mode:
    • PDF only - fetches only the certificate file in gemstone
    • PDF and override data - fetch the certificate file and override existing gemstone data with the laboratory data
    • PDF and fill missing data - fetch the certificate file and add the missing gemstone data
  • Certificate number:
    • Valigara supports storing 2 certificate images per gemstone
    • Select First or Second depending on whether the certificate number is stored in "Certificate number" or in "Certificate number 2" field.

5. Click Yes to start the process

6. Upon completion, the certificate file is available on the gemstone page, in the form of an image and .pdf files. 

  • To fetch the gemstone information, GIA requires the "Precise weight" and "certificate number" fields of the gemstone. Make sure to fill them out before running the integration.
