Cal­houn - Tim A. Haney, RJ/AGS of Haney Jew­elry Com­pany, Inc. has suc­cess­fully com­pleted the an­nual Amer­i­can Gem Society (AGS) re­cer­ti­fi­ca­tion exam. This manda­tory exam was devel­oped to main­tain pro­fes­sional cre­den­tials, which demon­strates their on­go­ing com­mit­ment to the Society’s mis­sion of consumer pro­tec­tion through con­tin­ued ed­u­ca­tion and up­hold­ing the high­est eth­i­cal stan­dards.

Haney earned his distin­guished Reg­is­tered Jeweler title fol­low­ing the com­ple­tion of a course of study and ex­am­i­na­tion. Ever year, Haney is re­quired to pass an exam en­com­pass­ing the lat­est in­dus­try de­vel­op­ments, in­clud­ing top­ics on gemol­ogy, busi­ness, technology, le­gal reg­u­la­tions and more.

“Noth­ing tells your cus­tomers that you are com­mit­ted to their jew­elry buy­ing ex­pe­ri­ence more than an AGS title,” said Scott Berg, CG, pres­i­dent of the Amer­i­can Gem Society Board of Di­rec­tors. “It shows your ded­i­ca­tion to pro­fes­sion­al­ism and on­go­ing gemo­log­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion.”

Only one in twenty re­tail jew­el­ers have cho­sen to meet the ex­act­ing stan­dards re­quired for mem­ber­ship. When pur­chas­ing fine jew­elry, shop with con­fi­dence by vis­it­ing a cre­den­tialed Amer­i­can Gem Society jeweler. You can find an Amer­i­can Gem Society jeweler at ags.org/find­a­jew­eler.
