    I am looking for a stone recently and find that AGS'' certifications are different ? basically all of them have 4C info but different in many details . some cut grading have "light performance";"proportions factors";"polish";"sym" for detail and some just have "idea (0)". Do they have different standard and different idea(0) ?
    also some are called "Diamond Quality Document",but some "Platinum light performance Diamond Quality Document" which has a "computer pic ",I am totally confused .

    yes they have different products.

    Diamond Quality Document is being replaced by Platinum/Diamond Quality Document, last year was the transition year I believe, so vendors can choose either of the document. These are the performance based grading report. The computer generated ASET image is an additional service available to Platinum Document for a fee.

    Also there are the Diamond Quality Report being replaced by the Gold/Diamond Quality Report. Diamond Quality Report do not have a cut grade, the Gold/Diamond Quality Report is a proportion based cut grade report, similar to GIA cut grade but with a slightly different range compared to GIA.

    The ideal (0) for the cut for the platinum and diamond quality document are the same thing but not for the gold/diamond quality report.

    Feidudu,

    The Platinum Report carries the AGS0 cut grade and replaces the old Diamond Quality Document, this grading is performance based. The Gold Report replaces the Diamond Quality Report and is proportion based.

    Read more here, go to Products at the top of the page in the consumer site and it covers each type of report in detail.
