The American Gem Society (AGS) added 167 fully-credentialed new titleholders, all who have completed the rigorous certification process to earn their esteemed AGS titles, and join the ranks of AGS credentialed professional members of the jewelry industry.

Upon completion of its annual Recertification Exam, AGS welcomed back over 2,100 titleholders and 58 of its milestone titleholders, some of whom have been recertified for over 30 years.

These titleholders ensure the highest ethical and professional standards in the jewelry industry, thereby continuing the Society’s vital mission of upholding ethics and consumer confidence in everyday business practices.

“Education is an important first step for so many people in the jewelry industry. It’s often also the stopping point in their professional development,” says Ruth Batson, CEO of AGS and AGS Laboratories. “The difference between an academic credential and a professional credential is an important distinction that sets AGS Titleholders apart from their peers. It is the foundation of Robert M. Shipley’s vision: professionalizing the jewelry trade through continuing education, business ethics, and consumer protection.”

AGS titleholders will be recognized at the Society’s Titleholders Luncheon on April 14 during the annual Conclave in Washington, D.C. The luncheon celebrates both new and milestone titleholders. “Nothing tells your customers that you are committed to their jewelry buying experience more than an AGS title,” said Ms. Batson. “It shows your dedication to professionalism and ongoing gemological education.”

AGS further noted a growing interest in achieving AGS certification and membership, thereby underlining a trend toward accountability, professionalism and integrity in the fine jewelry industry.
