loose diamondsWith today's concerns about synthetic diamonds, it is vital to your brand, reputation—and bottom line—that you know for certain whether the diamonds you are selling are natural or not, or have been treated.

AGS Laboratories offers a Natural Diamond Verification, an affordable service that offers retailers peace of mind 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.

The Natural Diamond Verification Service is an extension of the AGS Laboratories mission of consumer protection. 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.

This 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.

Contact AGS Laboratories today at, or call 877.367.0288, and learn how we can save you time, money and provide you with peace of mind that the diamonds you are buying and selling are the real deal…or not.
