Professional Gem Sciences Opens LA Lab

Professional Gem Sciences Inc., cofounded by Thomas and Myriam Tashey, opened a new gemological laboratory April 2 in Los Angeles, CA. The new lab, located in the 550 South Hill Street building, offers diamond and color gemstone grading and certificates as well as full enhancement/treatment disclosure and laser inscription of certificate numbers, brands or special messages.

The new PGS lab will be run by the same management team as the PGS lab in Chicago. Both labs provide grading reports within 48 to 72 hours. The Tasheys are 26-year industry veterans and have run their own laboratory business for the past 21 years.
