We submitted our latest
generation Asha® (DLC diamond coated) to Michael Rogers, GIA Graduate Gemologist, and asked him to
evaluate it the same way that he would evaluate a diamond. He was also the
appraiser for our Asha® H&A, and as before, we note that we selected him
for two reasons:
a) he was unique in that he does not sell or deal in
gems, he focuses entirely on unbiased appraisals, and
b) he had done a hidden camera undercover on jewelers
for a local new investigation, which we thought was very impressive.

and Excellent are the highest ratings possible for
their respective categories under the GIA diamond grading system.
