@Ticktock:

there’s AGI and AGS who do diamond certs. AGI is used primarily in Europe. I’ve never encoungered ABI, do you think it could have been a “G?” good luck, hope that helps 🙂

I would take this question to pricescope.com. I’ve never heard of that certification.

I have definitely never heard of that lab. Personally I would try to stick to GIA-certified stones. They developed the 4 C’s in the first place, they have very strict grading standards, and are known for having the most accurate and reliable reports in the industry. Why risk going with another lab and potentially having a “loose” grading report?

ABI is not a certification lab-it’s a vendor that Helzberg and others get their diamonds from. They provide diamonds that are certed from all different labs (GIA, IGI, EGL, etc). ABI is basically a place that companies can call on when they don’t want to take on the responsibility, financially, of diamond purchasing. ABI stands for Absolute Brilliance Incorporation. They are based out of New York.
