Accurate Gemological Laboratories Inc. (AGL) is an independent gemological laboratory that offers professional, fair and accurate diamond grading and jewelry appraisals. For nearly a decade, AGL has provided both the jewelry trade and retail consumers with the highest quality of service and reliable assessments. Our dedication to our craft and commitment to integrity is easily what sets us apart and has earned us our distinguished reputation.
Why choose an independent lab like AGL?
As an independent laboratory that does not buy or sell jewelry, we have no vested interest in the item you own or intend to buy. You can always be sure that our trained appraisers will give you a fair and accurate appraisal for your jewelry that is entirely objective. AGL’s appraisers operate under the highest ethical standard and have a reputation for uncompromising integrity and quality.
An AGL jewelry appraisal is a complete evaluation of the condition, quality and value of an item of jewelry. This document includes a description and assessment of the materials, design and craftsmanship of the piece. Our trained and certified professionals evaluate every piece carefully and thoroughly before including their findings in a detailed report and providing an estimated price. Having your jewelry appraised by AGL means you can be sure it will be valued properly.
There are a plethora of factors that go into determining the grade of a diamond and often it is a combination of these factors that set the value for a diamond. At AGL, we offer several different kinds of diamond grading reports to best suit your specific needs.
At AGL, we boast a team of highly trained and qualified professionals. Our gemologists, jewelers and appraisers are certified by some of the top institutions in the field including the Gemological institute of America (GIA), the Graduate Gemologist (GG), the Accredited Jewelry Professional (AJP), the International School of Gemology (ISG), and the Registered Gemologist Appraiser (RGA).
