From AGS, Las Vegas, Nevada - Small is the new “mighty” at AGS Laboratories. The Lab unveiled a new diamond grading document at the JCK Las Vegas show today, the Diamond QualityTM Analysis (DQA).
The DQA is similar to the Diamond QualityTM Document though in a more compact 8.5’’ x 4.75’’ format. The DQA contains a complete analysis of the diamond’s Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight, and while a laser inscription is included in the document, it will not have a plot. The DQA will be used for diamonds weighing .18 carats to .99 carats.
“We’ve been getting increased demand for the DQA, and we wanted to give our clients additional tools to sell their diamonds,” says Peter Yantzer, Executive Director of AGS Laboratories. “The DQA adds even more diversity to our product line, and is perfect for clients who need a document with a complete cut grade for their smaller diamonds.”
The AGS Laboratories, established in 1996, is committed to protecting the consumer by providing unbiased grading reports based on the highest standards of diamond grading. AGS Laboratories is the only diamond grading laboratory licensed to use the AGS Performance-Based Cut Grade System — the first-ever cut grading system for a fancy shaped diamond. The Lab currently issues a cut grade on round brilliant, princess, and emerald cut diamonds. Other shapes are due to come on line in the near future.
