Credentials

The American Gem Society promotes the advancement of professional education within the jewelry industry to enhance consumer confidence and trust in the knowledge, business integrity, and competence of retail jewelers. There are stringent requirements for election to membership for a business and for the awarding of credentials to an individual titleholder.

Each American Gem Society member store must employ at least one credentialed associate before achieving active membership status. These titles include Registered Jeweler, Certified Gemologist, and Certified Gemologist Appraiser. In addition to these titles, the American Gem Society also issues two designations – Certified Sales Associate and Certified Jewelry Arts Professional.
