(PRESS RELEASE) LAS VEGAS – The American Gem Society (AGS) announced the launch of “digital badging” credentials for AGS members. The badges are the first of its kind in the jewelry industry.

A digital badge is a graphical icon that indicates the AGS members’ credentials and accomplishments and is displayed, accessed, and verified online. The badge can be added to their email signature, website, or social media.

Consumers can click on the member’s badge, which then takes them to an online source that goes into further detail about why they have earned that badge, the methods they took to achieve it, and how they are working to maintain their AGS credentials.

“As a titleholder, our members have pledged to uphold the AGS mission of maintaining and promoting strong business ethics, continuing education, and protecting the consumer. In their stores, our members proudly display their certificates, but they cannot do that online or in emails.Digital badging acts as that virtual wall behind their desk or counter where they can proudly display their hard-earned certificates,” said Katherine Bodoh, RJ, CEO of the American Gem Society and AGS Laboratories. “It’s one more way we can let consumers know about the importance of shopping with an AGS jeweler, and is a point of differentiation for the jeweler.”

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
