The AGL was founded in 1977 in the very heart of New York's diamond district. The AGL specializes in colored gem stone reports and was the first laboratory in the USA to carry our gem stone country of origin reports.
The AGL have long being regarded as having one of the most comprehensive colored gem stone reports giving details on the quality of the gem stone and creating their own gem stone grading guide which has become very easy for the consumer to follow.
The AGL has a very strict policy on hiring some of the best gem gemologist for their reports coupled with the latest in equipment for gem stone identification.

Every sapphire we have is a unique stone created by mother nature, which is cut and polished to show off that one stone's color and luster, bringing out the individual character of each gem. Once the sapphire is certified, we hand pick a unique custom ring setting to be made, which is then set by hand for that stone. It takes approximately 3 - 4 months from when a sapphire is hand picked to having the sapphire set and listed for sale at wholesale price. We do keep a wide selection of loose natural sapphires in stock which are not set, so please contact us if you have any questions on any one of our natural sapphire rings or a custom ring setting which you might be considering.
We own our offices in Sri Lanka were we personally travel to throughout the year to buy our natural Ceylon sapphires from both the mines & markets with support from our full time gem-broker their cutting out all the middle-men, this allows us to buy the finest sapphire at prices not matched by anyone.
