GIA and AGS are generally on par in the color and clarity grading. Only difference is in Cut grading. AGS is stricter in cut grading for round cut, slightly different flavor than GIA, and is the only lab that grades Princess on cut performance, which you are interested in.

Thanks for the reply. And like I said, I''m completely new to this, so what exactly is cut grading?? And I understand a bit of the GIA (whats considered colorless and near colorless, due to my Mother and all her diamonds) but what is considered good for AGS??
