(Press Release)
LAS VEGAS – The American Gem Society Laboratories (AGS Laboratories) announced that it will launch a new Natural Diamond Verification Service to distinguish if a diamond is natural or synthetic, and to discern if the diamond has been HPHT-treated. The service will begin in June.

This service offers retailers a 48-hour turnaround time. For diamonds passing as natural, retailers will have the option to proceed with full diamond grading and the fee for the Natural Diamond Verification Service will then be waived.

“In today’s marketplace, transparency is more important than ever,” says Ruth Batson, CEO of the American Gem Society and AGS Laboratories. “The Natural Diamond Verification Service will help communicate the scientific facts, clearly and effectively, providing retailers with one less concern as a business person.”

AGS Laboratories is the only nonprofit laboratory created with a mission of consumer protection, and the Natural Diamond Verification Service is an extension of that mission. Given the growing concern in the industry over the sale and resale of synthetic diamonds and the potential risks involved with undisclosed treated diamonds, the AGS Laboratories will offer this service to give retailers assurance should they buyback, upgrade or purchase diamonds from customers.

The Natural Diamond Verification Service also helps suppliers provide added confidence to their customer by ensuring that a team of diamond-grading professionals, using state-of-the-art equipment, have verified if a diamond is natural or synthetic. AGS Lab

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
