AGS - Dedicated to Ethics, Knowledge and Consumer Protection!

Droste's Jewelry Shoppes, Inc. are members of the (AGS) American Gem Society. The American Gem Society was established in 1934 by a select group of independent jewelers and Robert M. Shipley, founder of the prestigious school of gemology, the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). It was their vision to create an association dedicated to setting and maintaining the highest possible standards of business ethics and professionalism in the jewelry industry.

Today, American Gem Society members continue their dedication to ethics, knowledge and consumer protection. Only a small percentage of those who apply for membership in the American Gem Society are awarded membership. In order for a firm to become a member of the American Gem Society they must meet the following criteria: The firm owners, principals, or employees must have a high level of gemological knowledge. This includes having studied and completed an Accredited or Graduate Program from the GIA Institute.
