The American Gem Society is dedicated to building trust and confidence with the jewelry-buying public. With that in mind, American Gem Society members aim to provide their customers with the very best service and information available in appraising diamonds and gemstones.  Independent Certified Gemologist Appraisers and Certified Gemologist Appraisers of the American Gem Society possess the necessary skill and experience to render valuation reports for your jewelry items.  They have been educated in both gemology and the methodologies of jewelry and diamond appraisals.

Omi GemsThe ICGA member does not buy or sell diamonds, jewelry or gemstones.  They also have completed an advanced course on various purposes of appraisals including estate taxes, divorce, or collateral.  Both the CGA and the ICGA must maintain an Accredited Gem Laboratory® - which consists of a gemological reference library and gemological testing equipment necessary to provide accurate identifications. There’s no better source for fair and accurate appraisals.

Remember, the value assigned to jewelry can vary depending on the function of the appraisal or report, so it is essential to establish your needs and purpose of the appraisal with your appraiser.
