(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.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
