When you become a member of the American Gem Society, you have access to a variety of exclusive events, programs, and services. Here are a few of the advantages that American Gem Society membership bestows.
AGS awards professional credentials, known as “titles,” designating members as skilled professionals once they have completed comprehensive gemological studies and examinations. An AGS credential conveys only the greatest qualities to your clients: ethics, integrity, and knowledge.
Continuing Education and Networking
Members are invited to attend Conclave, the Circle of Distinction Dinner and educational webinars, as well as meetings hosted by the regional Guilds and member groups, such as the Young Titleholders, to advance their education and networking throughout the year.
Professional Consumer Marketing Support
Each year, millions visit our website and our Find a Jeweler platform, where we connect consumers to you. Our ongoing consumer campaign utilizes a dynamic mix of print and digital advertising, PR, brochures, AGS publications, online, and social media marketing. Our goal: to build consumer awareness of the importance of shopping with a credentialed, professional jeweler.
Offering Business Solutions
We have developed strategic relationships with Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company (insurance), Wells Fargo (private label credit card and credit card processing), GemFind (website development) and Parcel Pro (shipping) that increase profitability of business operations through lower rates, higher customer service, and incentive programs.
