(Press Release) Las Vegas, NV – The American Gem Society has launched a new addition to its Find a Jeweler search tool on its website, Find A Professional Jeweler.

The new addition highlights credentialed industry professionals while reminding consumers of the importance of shopping with qualified jewelers who are up to date on their education and certification. The new tool is accessed from the home page of the AGS website or directly via its own url www.americangemsociety.org/findapro.

“AGS is pleased to highlight our titleholders and promote the importance of continued education and recertification,” said Ruth Batson, CEO of the AGS and AGS Laboratories. “If a consumer meets a jeweler, they now have an unbiased way to learn more about that jeweler’s commitment to education, ethics and professionalism.”

The tool provides information about jewelers, including their AGS credentials, whether they have completed their recent recertification and whether or not they recently attended Conclave. Visitors can hover over the icons next to the title, certification, and Conclave to read an explanation of each and its place within the fine jewelry industry.

AGS will continue to drive traffic to its Find a Jeweler search in 2017 through consumer advertising in both print and online.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
