VENUS GRADING SYSTEM

The Venus Grading System® (VGS®) is a proprietary tool for describing diamonds in precise detail. We measure twenty aspects of each stone and carefully grade each against exact standards and sets of reference gems. The result is a unique report for each diamond and a transparent, logical rationale for its price.

Deeper than traditional measures of cut, color, clarity and carats, and more sophisticated than comparable certifications, the Venus Grading System® (VGS®) expresses everything we see when we set our expert eyes on a stone and ensures our customers know, in-depth, exactly what they are purchasing, even if they are not holding the stone in their hands. In addition to helping buyers understand the value of a stone by clearly showing the size and location of every inclusion, the Venus Grading System® (VGS®) helps jewelers find the right diamonds for their designs. The knowledge that Venus Jewel provides in these and many other instances is an essential ingredient of the trust our customers place in us.

To ensure we maintain consistent standards over time, we use rigorous quality control measures, including algorithms for measuring and grading each cut. In addition to enabling more precise measurements, these algorithms have helped Venus Jewel exert greater control over production, ensuring more consistently well-cut stones.
