The Independent Certified Gemologist Appraiser title is awarded to the individual member whose sole business is appraising. The ICGA does not engage in purchasing or selling gems or jewelry. Earning the ICGA title requires advanced training and experience in determining the value of gemstones and jewelry in addition completing an extensive course in personal property appraising. Our members must adhere to the American Gem Society’s code of ethics and are required to re-certify their title or designation each year.
