New site, new features, more benefits for members.

The American Gem Society is excited to announce that we have launched an all new website.

Besides an entirely new look, the new AGS website features an enhanced Member Portal that includes added functionality and improved navigation, contact forms, the ability to check and manage accounts, easily upload files and photos to your member profile and the job board, event registration, online education, and so much more!

All members have the ability to easily manage their profiles, keep track of their education and certifications, and make real-time updates to their Find a Jeweler, Find a Professional Jeweler, Find an Appraiser, and Find a Supplier listings.

One of the features we are most excited about is the ability to interact and connect within the new Member Portal. Similar to the social media platforms LinkedIn and Facebook, members will be able to directly, and privately, message other AGS members and the AGS team.

Additionally, members can sign up for Conclave and the Circle of Distinction Dinner directly through the new website. All AGS-related events, including those hosted by the Guilds and Young Titleholders, will be listed in one place within an improved member calendar.

Coming soon in the fall will be another great feature that will make all timely communication, like education, certification, and dues reminders, automated. This will allow the AGS team the opportunity—and time—to connect more with our members.

With the Recertification exams upon us, eligible members can simply sign into their profile on the Member Portal and click directly on the “AGSPro” link located on their profile page.

Suppliers—the Find a Supplier search on the Member Portal features new enhancements, allowing you to create a profile of your business and upload several of your favorite products shots!

For the consumer and trade, navigating the site will be even easier! Whether they’re using the Find a Jeweler, Find a Professional Jeweler, or Find an Appraiser search, researching birthstones, reading our news articles, or verifying a diamond report with the AGS Laboratories, the new format is more user-friendly and clickable.

In the months to come, we will share more exciting news about the new website’s features, functionality, and how it benefits you as a member of the American Gem Society. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at
