Meet the Gemologist
Nathan Wright is not only a Graduate Jeweler Gemologist, he also holds the distinction of being a Certified Gemologist Appraiser. This title is the highest designation within the American Gem Society. He passed his 2017 AGS Re-certification with a 100%, joining the “AGS Honor Roll” group made up of only 12% of the participants to achieve the perfect grade.
We asked him why he loves his job… “Every day, I get to work with a team that has the same end result in mind. If you need a hand, opinion, or idea, there’s always someone there to listen and help create results.”
What is a Graduate Gemologist?
GIA, or the Gemological Institute of America, is THE training authority in the American jewelry industry. To earn a Graduate Gemologist degree from the GIA, you must complete and pass five course studies and three lab classes, and then pass a comprehensive final exam. While you do earn a certificate of completion after each class or lab, you must complete and pass all eight (earning eight separate certificates) to earn the degree of Graduate Gemologist.
