The American Gem Society Laboratories (AGS Laboratories) is launching a new Natural Diamond Verification Service beginning June, to distinguish if a diamond is natural or synthetic, and to discern if the diamond has been HPHT treated.

The service is maintained as affordable.

AGS Laboratories is the only nonprofit laboratory created with a mission of consumer protection, and the Natural Diamond Verification Service is an extension of that mission. Given the growing concern in the industry over the sale and resale of synthetic diamonds and the potential risks involved with undisclosed treated diamonds, the AGS Laboratories will offer this service to give retailers assurance should they buyback, upgrade or purchase diamonds from customers.

It offers retailers ease and a 48 hour turnaround time. For diamonds passing as natural, retailers will have the option to proceed with full diamond grading and the fee for the Natural Diamond Verification Service will then be waived.

“In today’s marketplace, transparency is more important than ever,” said Ruth Batson, CEO of the American Gem Society and AGS Laboratories. “The Natural Diamond Verification Service will help communicate the scientific facts, clearly and effectively, providing retailers with one less concern as a business person.”

The Natural Diamond Verification Service also helps suppliers provide added confidence to their customer by ensuring that a team of diamond grading professionals, using state-of-the-art equipment, have verified if a diamond is natural or synthetic. AGS Laboratories also performs testing to confirm whether or not the diamond has been HPHT treated. In the information age, with tech savvy, highly-informed consumers, this type of testing creates confidence and validates the quality and the pricing of the diamonds.

The new Natural Diamond Verification Service is available from AGS Laboratories via standard diamond testing protocol. Similar services for melee measuring 0.1 to 0.18cts will be available in the future.
