American Gem Society

Established more than 70 years ago, The American Gem Society is a not-for-profit trade association of fine jewelers, designers, and appraisers in North America. The members are dedicated to consumer protection, ethical business practices, and the development of superior gemological skills and knowledge.

Only 5% of all jewelers, designers, and appraisers have met the American Gem Society standards. In addition to satisfying the exacting criteria, members admitted to the American Gem Society have proven a commitment to their community and the highest standards of ethical practice.
