Are AIG appraisals real?

Q

I recently purchased a diamond online and it came with an AIG appraisal. I’ve seen mixed reveiws about the company and thought perhaps you have an opinion. Thanks

Hi Nick,

If we define real as any report that guarantees their grades then no AIG, GIA, AGS, EGL, & I.G.I are not Real. They give spreads, ranges if you will. Without rock solid data it is impossible to make an educated decision.
