AGS Laboratories Launches Mounted Diamond Evaluation Reports

Las Vegas, NV (January 12, 2016) – The American Gem Society (AGS) Laboratories has announced that they are now offering diamond grading reports for diamonds set into jewelry. 

Offering the same level of consistency and accuracy that AGS Laboratories diamond grading reports are known for, the new 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. Industry retailers and wholesalers can now 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. “AGS Laboratories is the only nonprofit lab dedicated to consumer protection, and consumers need and deserve a diamond evaluation report for jewelry that will provide consistency and accuracy in diamond grading.”

The new Mounted Diamond Evaluation 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.
