GIA Offers Paper Versions of AGS Ideal Grading Reports


The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is now offering printed versions of AGS Ideal grading reports. This report complements a GIA diamond grading report to capture a diamond’s beauty holistically. 


GIA adopted the product as a digital-only supplement to its own reports when it acquired elements of AGS’s laboratories in 2022. The AGS Ideal Report measures light performance, including brightness, fire, and contrast, from center to edge.


The document is available with the following GIA reports: Diamond Grading Report, Diamond Dossier, Laboratory-Grown Diamond Report, Laboratory-Grown Diamond Report Dossier, eReport, and Diamond Focus Report, said GIA.


From 15 April to 15 May 2024, GIA is offering the printed version of the AGS Ideal Report for just $2.50, a 50-percent discount. This limited-time promotion is available globally.


The fee for the printed AGS Ideal report is in addition to the $25 price for the service. GIA will offer printed AGS Ideal reports for clients with previously issued digital AGS Ideal reports without having to resubmit the stone back to GIA.


The move comes after GIA returned to issuing paper dossier reports after a negative reaction from parts of the industry to its shift from paper to digital-only versions of these reports. (Photo courtesy: GIA)
