(Press Release)
LAS VEGAS – The American Gem Society (AGS) has announced the addition of 167 fully credentialed new titleholders, all of whom have completed the certification process to earn their AGS titles and join the ranks of AGS credentialed professional members of the jewelry industry.
Additionally, upon completion of its annual Recertification Exam, AGS welcomes back more than 2,100 titleholders and 58 of its milestone titleholders, some of whom have been recertified for more than 30 years. These titleholders ensure the highest ethical and professional standards in the jewelry industry, and continue the Society’s 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.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
