The Mounted Diamond Evaluation Reports will include color and clarity grades, along with total carat weight as provided by the manufacturer, a description of the jewelry, and verification of the mounting stamp indicating the precious metal quality. In addition, AGS Laboratories will also confirm that the diamonds are natural and untreated. The report is presented in a credit card sized format that is easy to use and includes a sample photo of graded jewelry. The report is for diamonds larger than 0.18 carats.
This would enable industry retailers and wholesalers to offer their customers enhanced consumer protection, satisfaction and confidence in their mounted jewelry.
“Offering the Mounted Diamond Evaluation Reports is one more way AGS Laboratories can fulfill its mission of consumer protection,” said Ruth Batson, CEO of the American Gem Society and AGS Laboratories.
