What makes membership in the American Gem Society so special? To begin with, it’s one of the oldest and most respected jewelry associations in the world. Founded in 1934 by Robert M. Shipley and several other well-established independent jewelers, the Society membership has included many of the leading jewelry firms and renowned gem experts in the industry.
The Society is particularly exclusive. Only a small percentage — about 5% of all jewelers, designers, appraisers, and suppliers nationwide — have met the standards for membership in the American Gem Society. For a firm to become a member of the American Gem Society, it must meet a list of rigid requirements.
If you have this level of commitment, knowledge, and ethical standards in your business dealings, explore the American Gem Society website for additional information on the requirements and benefits of membership, an organization dedicated to "Consumer Protection Since 1934™".
