About this Association

AGA has a rich history of connecting practicing gemologists with cutting edge gemological science, new gem finds, and issues facing the industry through timely and important presentations at conferences in Tucson and Las Vegas.

The Accredited Gemologists Association is an organization of all beliefs and cultures and share a common bond of the love of gemstones and gemology. As a professional peer society, they believe in excellence and are dedicated to establishing the highest ethical and professional standards of practice.

Established in 1974 by a group of Fellows of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain, AGA was envisioned as a network for sharing gemological information and skills. Inspired by Antonio (Tony) C. Bonanno, Tamiko Butler and Sonja Schwartzman founded the American Alumni of the FGA which quickly grew and expanded to include Graduate Gemologists of the Gemological Institute of America by 1975. Today's Accredited Gemologists Association proudly counts some of the world’s leading gemologists among their members.

As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, the AGA are dedicated to promoting the highest standards in Gemological Education, Research, and Ethics. AGA membership funds Gemological Education Scholarships, Gemological Research Grants, and supports gemological conferences and continuing education events worldwide.

Members gain peer recognition for active participation in educational programs and industry forums while enjoying the personal satisfaction of improved gemological skills and giving back to our profession. Voting Membership is available to anyone holding a GG (GIA), FGA, FCGmA, or other equivalent gemological credential approved by the AGA Board of Governors. Non-voting memberships do not require gemological credentials.

The AGA uses their website and social media platforms to educate members and the public about developments in gemology. Members may also receive referrals and other pertinent information through their online services.

Following a day filled with cutting edge presentations and invaluable networking opportunities, the annual AGA Tucson conference and gala culminates in presentation of the Antonio C. Bonanno Award for Excellence in Gemology. Selected by a majority vote of the AGA membership the award recognizes people for their significant contributions to the gemological field. The award calls attention not only to the outstanding contributions of the recipient, but to the responsibility of the gemological community to encourage and reward ongoing research, education and dissemination of information.
