Why the American Gem Society
The American Gem Society is the country's preeminent jewelry trade organization dedicated to consumer protection. Which basically means, if you’re looking to buy jewelry, you just clicked to the right website. Since 1934, we’ve been making it easier and safer to buy jewelry of any kind. Even if you don’t know the first thing about cut and clarity, we can help you, educate you, and point you in the direction of jewelers that are dedicated to protecting you. Learn More
Here's what you need to know:
- Only one out of every twenty jewelers opt to meet the qualifications for AGS membership. And that doesn’t guarantee entry. Each jeweler needs references from professionals in the industry and must be approved by a panel of peers.
- We hold our member jewelers to the highest of standards, require annual recertification and provide hands-on training.
- We're a not-for-profit organization. We put people before profit.
