Seen here is an example of AGS Labs’ new digital diamond grading reports
Las Vegas—AGS Laboratories has launched its diamond grading reports in digital form.

The digital documents will serve as an official grading report, the lab said, and will be formatted the same way as its printed documents.

They will live on AGS Labs’ “Only My Diamond” online platform so consumers benefit too, also seeing a video of the diamond, an explanation of the 4Cs, the diamond’s clarity plot, laser inscription and social media sharing options.

“By incorporating the official digital grading report into the OMD experience, the retailer can present the diamond with a grading report that their customers will find both fun and interesting,” said Jason Quick, AGS Laboratories Executive Director.

Additionally, no app is needed to view the digital report; the document can be accessed through the Report Verification function on or display cards in the store, which feature a QR Code linking to the document.

If the consumer, retailer or supplier wants a physical grading report, it can be ordered from AGS Laboratories.

The first digital documents are already being used by retailer Helzberg Diamonds for its Kalahari Dream collection ahead of the holiday season.

“We’re excited to add digital documents to our product offering,” Quick said. “Digital documents help us in our commitment to environmental management by reducing paper, as well as, reducing operational costs for everyone in the supply chain across a variety of processes: shipping, storing and replacement of lost documents.”
