Tell Them What the Acronym Means!
Not everyone knows what the acronyms after your name means, so be sure to let them know.

Registered Jeweler (RJ): When you see an "RJ" title after a jeweler's name, it means they are an American Gem Society Registered Jeweler. In order to earn this title, the associate completed all the required coursework and classroom study, along with written and practical exams in diamond grading. They must also pass a recertification exam each year in order to keep their title, ensuring that they are staying on top of their game with skill and knowledge of our industry. What does this mean to you? This title lets you know that the jeweler you are working with truly understands jewelry, diamonds, and gemstones, and have proven their commitment to their community and the highest standards of ethical practice.
