We serve the interests of the gem and jewellery industries through the high standards of education on our courses and our support for global gemmological research. We also offer membership opportunities, the chance to buy gemmological instruments, a number of events and conferences throughout the year and two internationally distributed publications: The Journal of Gemmology and Gems&Jewellery.
