An American Gem Society Certified Gemologist Appraiser (CGA) is recognized throughout the jewelry industry as an appraisal authority.  The title of CGA is the highest awarded by the American Gem Society.

 The American Gem Society  was founded in 1934 and promotes the highest professional standards of ethics, gemological knowledge, education and service in the jewelry industry.  Today it is an elite group of jewelers in North America.  Those who are AGS titleholders have attained the very highest levels of gemological expertise. 

The AGS requires its Certified Gemologist Appraisers to have an AGS Accredited Gem Laboratory on the premises.  This laboratory must contain a variety of specific equipment to perform an accurate gem or metal identification.  An additional requirement of CGAs is continuing education,  including an annual recertification exam to prove continued proficiency and familiarity with new developments in the industry.  Color vision/hue discrimination is also tested routinely. Curt Parker Jewelers strictly adheres to all of these requirements.
