There are other labs outside of North America which are using same name such as EGL Israel or EGL International (or even some websites call them only EGL) are not part of EGL USA.
Unfortunately EGL USA is in a legal dispute with EGL International or EGL Israel which has been flooding the market with diamonds that have not been graded as stringently. When purchasing an EGL graded stone, be sure to insist upon EGL-USA unless you and your jeweler are able to scrutinize the stone in question very well and be assured it is as advertised. Any EGL that does not have an EGLUSA logo can sometimes have a 1 or even 2 grades lower in the color and clarity grades. EGL USA is far stricter compared to other EGL locations. Please visit http://www.EGLUSA.com for more information or call EGL USA at (877) 893-8593.
Each consultation of appraisal issued by the EGL USA lab states "A member of the EGL USA Group" and certificate numbers are preceded by either "CA" (Canada) or "US" (United States), to provide consumers the assurance that their certificate has been issued by a member of the EGL USA Group.
