  • No minimum order is required
  • Please write “Cut Grade Sorting” on the package; this is important information for the Receiving Department
  • Place diamonds in individual parcel papers
  • Diamonds not meeting the AGS Ideal™ criteria will either be returned, or we can work  with you to determine other grading solutions
  • Please note: AGS Laboratories does not offer a recheck or treatment testing for this particular service
  • All diamonds meeting AGS Ideal will be processed for full grading and documents
  • Once sorting is complete, we will determine a turnaround time, unless you have specified a “rush” or “priority service”
  • Preliminary grading results will be sent to the client upon completion of full grading
  • Stones not meeting the AGS Ideal criteria will be issued a fee of 50% of your DQD pricing level and then returned back to you
