Local Professional Continues Commitment to Consumer Protection with Jewelry Industry Recertification


Roger Riemann, of Floyd & Green Jewelers, has successfully completed the annual American Gem Society (AGS) recertification exam. The 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.

Mr. Riemann earned his distinguished Certified Gemologist Appraiser title following the completion of a course of study and examination. Every year, Mr. Riemann is required to pass an exam encompassing the latest industry developments, including topics on gemology, business, technology, legal regulations, and more.

“The foundation the American Gem Society stands upon is comprised of our educational programs and credentials,” said John Carter, CGA, president of the American Gem Society Board of Directors. “It’s the way that we differentiate our members from the rest of the trade and completing the process is no small task.”

Mr. Riemann is one of the only three Certified Gemologist Appraisers in the state of South Carolina. Only 1 in 20 retail jewelry firms have chosen to meet the exacting standards required for store membership. When purchasing fine jewelry, shop with confidence by visiting a credentialed American Gem Society jewelry. You can find an AGS jewelry at ags.org/findajeweler.
