The American Gem Society Laboratory announced yesterday that it will offer laser inscriptions for mounted diamonds. Branding diamonds has been a major selling point for retailers, and laser inscription has been very successful in conjunction with diamond sales, and is now available for mounted stones through the AGSL. By giving consumers an opportunity to personalize a diamond gift, retailers can have a new sales tool for the holiday season.
“I am pleased with the success, the quality, and the ability of the AGSL to laser inscribe mounted stones,” said Steven Biegler, director of operations. “We are hoping this will give many retailers the competitive advantage to make this a successful selling season.”
The state-of-the-art laser inscription service allows inscription of finely detailed logos, as well as gem identification information. The excimer laser uses a cold vapor short wavelength that allows control of depth during inscription, which makes the process very stable and virtually eliminates the risk of a diamond fracture.
The AGS created its Diamond Grading Standards in 1966 and opened the AGS Gemological Laboratory in 1996. The lab issues the Diamond Quality Document (DQD), known for its grade on diamond cut, the Diamond Quality Report (DQR) and the Diamond Consultation (DC).
