America probably has the most advanced and long-standing structure for jewelry appraisal in the world. There are several formal training opportunities for Gemologists & Appraisers, most resulting in nationally recognized qualifications.
Most Appraisers strive to conform to the non-obligatory guidelines set out by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). It is generally considered necessary, by the jewelry trade and insurance industry, for an Appraiser to hold a Graduate Gemologist (GG) degree from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or a similar international gemological qualification.
