The American Gem Society

The American Gem Society was established in 1934 by a select group of independent jewelers and Robert M. Shipley, founder of the prestigious school of gemology, the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).

The goal of the American Gem Society was to create an association of fine jewelry retailers dedicated to setting and maintaining the highest possible standards of business ethics and professionalism in the jewelry industry. Only a small percentage of those who apply for membership in the American Gem Society are awarded membership.

Unlike other professional gemologist, American Gem Society members must renew their titles each year with a very comprehensive annual examination that insures members are kept up to date with any new gemological advancements.

When you shop with a member of the AGS, you are assured of doing business with jewelry professionals: a staff and store committed to ethics, knowledge and consumer protection.
