AGS Laboratories Will Resume Grading Laboratory-Grown Diamonds

The nonprofit lab expands its mission of consumer protection to the laboratory-grown market

AGS Laboratories is pleased to announce that they will resume grading laboratory-grown diamonds, a service they previously offered until 2012. The enhanced report is the result of over a year of research and development to create a product that helps jewelry buyers better understand the qualities of their laboratory-grown diamonds.

The Laboratory-Grown Diamond Grading Report will be in a digital format and is a component of Only My Diamond® (OMD) for Laboratory-Grown Diamonds, which will contain additional educational information, including a special section on the 4Cs of laboratory-grown diamonds. Other noteworthy features of the report include:

  • Unique color and clarity grading nomenclature, enhanced educational information, and a focus on precision cutting.
  • The only one of its kind offering AGS Ideal® laboratory-grown diamonds.
  • Two laser inscriptions, which will clearly identify that the diamond is laboratory-grown.
  • Growth details regarding the laboratory-grown diamond.


“As the market expands, consumers need a diamond grading report that clearly explains the characteristics of laboratory-grown diamonds,” says Jason Quick, Executive Director of AGS Laboratories. “Our lab was founded for consumer protection, and our Laboratory-Grown Diamond Grading Report is one more way that we are demonstrating our commitment to the mission.”

AGS Laboratories will begin with a pilot program for the report and will expand services later this year. To learn more, contact [email protected].
