Have you ever gone into a shop anxious about your upcoming purchase and left with a lingering feeling that you could have been misled? Whether you are shopping for an engagement ring or that incredibly unique piece to become your family's heirloom, wouldn't you rather feel completely confident and joyful about your purchase? When shopping with AGS certified professionals you can shop with confidence in knowing they are here to service you, the consumer.
What is the American Gemological Society? What does it mean to be accredited by AGS? AGS is a jewelry trade association and organization established over 80 years ago by the founder of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and a group of highly skilled and knowledgeable jewelers. This prestigious group formed the Society to create and maintain elite industry standards in order to help give the consumer proper knowledge and understanding, while also enforcing and regulating ethical business practices. To offer you a loose comparison, as the IRS is an agency responsible for enforcing tax laws, AGS is responsible for enforcing ethical business practices and proper consumer education. A&J Jewelers has upheld these standards for 20 years with certification. We are not pawnbrokers, wholesalers or street vendors. We are credible professionals who are highly educated. We conduct ourselves and our businesses honorably.
Unlike non-AGS certified jewelers and retailers, we are held responsible for these practices, educating the consumer and protecting them from being deceived about what they are buying and its price. As well as consumer protection, we are accountable for continuing our education and staying up to date on the current market prices, trends, treatments and much more. The American Gem Society assures this through the requirement of annual re-certification. To give you an example of the lengths an AGS member goes to in order to be there for you, the consumer, American Gem Society titleholders and retailers must each be re-certified every year whereas accountants only have to be re-certified every few years.
The AGS membership and application process is more rigorous than that of an Ivy League college. You could say that the American Gem Society is the Ivy League among accreditation in the jewelry industry.
