In our last issue, we focused on the definition of the AGS Cut Grade and the story it tells about a diamond’s sparkle. What kind of report can help you sell an AGS Ideal® Cut Grade diamond? The Platinum Light Performance Diamond Quality Document (DQD)!
This report is the most comprehensive of the AGS Laboratories documents, defining each of the 4Cs with an ASET® map.
The ASET® is a useful selling tool, as it communicates how the diamond was cut and it’s light performance. Just below the ASET® is a key that defines each of the colors found in the image, making the tool easy to explain and understand at the sales counter.
Other notable report features include:
- “Natural Diamond” under the AGS Number, providing confirmation that the diamond is natural.
- Plot diagram used to identify the diamond’s unique clarity characteristics.
- Scannable QR-code that leads the buyer to AGS Laboratories Report Verification where they may verify the report.
