What is a Gemologist

As a Certified Gemologist I am able to have a confident conversation with any customer about their jewelry needs.
I went through extensive education and training at the Gemological Institute of America followed by the American Gem Society to acquire my C.G. title. I’m the only Certified Gemologist in the region which sets us apart from any other store and makes us the authority in knowledge and experience. We establish a level of trust and knowledge that can’t be matched and can handle any gemological need you have.

The Importance of a Diamond Grading

Ask a Gemologist

What does it mean to be a gemologist?

What makes membership in the American Gem Society so special?

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.

The firm owners, principals, or employees must have completed an accredited or graduate program from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or Gem-A (the Gemmological Association of Great Britain). In addition, they must have completed further studies with the American Gem Society.


The firm must hold a reputation for unquestioned integrity in the business community and must be operated in a way that will enhance the confidence of the public in the jewelry industry.

The owners and principals must demonstrate that they are genuinely interested in operating their business in accordance with the highest ethical standards and that the firm exemplifies this belief.
