Educational Video on Yellow Diamonds

AGS members have access to a 25% discount of NCDIA’s 30-minute educational video on yellow diamonds. The cost with discount is $60.

One of the challenges of selling natural color diamonds is communicating what natural color diamonds are all about. This video conversation is filled with science, history, and esthetic concepts. This informational video will help retailers and suppliers better understand yellow diamonds and open up new opportunities for revenue and sales.

To purchase access to the video, go to and use code ec7d0a. For technical support, contact
