LOS ANGELES – Ruth Batson, CEO of American Gem Society (AGS) and AGS Laboratories, is scheduled to appear on FOX Business Network and Bloomberg International’s “Worldwide Business with Kathy Ireland” this weekend.

During the interview, Batson explains the advantages that consumers experience when they make diamond purchases through AGS retailers, and the importance of asking for an AGS Laboratories diamond grading report.

You can see the interview on Fox Business Network as sponsored programming on Sunday, Jan. 24 at 5:30 p.m. EST and on Bloomberg International at 7 p.m. GMT.

For more than 80 years, the American Gem Society has offered credentialing of jewelry retailers and suppliers. When a consumer purchases a diamond from a credentialed AGS retailer, he or she gains more assurance they’ve engaged in an ethical transaction. AGS members are required to practice the highest possible standards regarding the education of their employees, diamond grading and ethical business practices, or they risk losing their membership.

In 1996, the AGS saw a need for a diamond-grading lab that shared its mission and created AGS Laboratories. Today, AGS Laboratories is the only nonprofit diamond-grading laboratory with a mission of consumer protection, carrying high standards of grading practices.

"Anytime you make a major purchase, you want to be sure that you’re getting your money’s worth," says JL Haber, vice president of programming for Worldwide Business with Kathy Ireland. “That is especially true when you’re purchasing something that you may have little personal knowledge about – such as a diamond. It’s good to know that AGS is there to help protect consumers, and we’re proud to feature them on our show."

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
