Las Vegas--The American Gem Society now is offering customized diamond sorting services for loose stones based on client-specific grading criteria, such as minimum color or quality.

The sorting is available for any quantity of loose stones that weigh between 0.18 and 49.99 carats, or for a minimum of 50 stones weighing between 0.18 and 1.99 carats (for standard diamond sorting.)

“We are proud to offer the industry a way to save both time and money, effectively increasing profitability, while also ensuring accuracy and protecting consumer confidence,” said AGS and AGS Laboratories CEO Ruth Batson. “Efficiency in the supply chain should prove beneficial for our esteemed AGS member retailers as well.”

The announcement comes less than a month after the AGS announced it would be offering diamond grading reports for stones already mounted into jewelry.
