In today's marketplace, the average business can post a few positive reviews and create a company website with very little effort.
How do you know if the Jeweler or Gemologist you have selected is trustworthy?
ASJG helps combat fraud and fake reviews by doing it's own independent research and releasing a trust report on it's findings for businesses in the Jeweler or Gemologist industry, similar to a Jeweler or Gemologist report card.
ASJG trust reports allow past, current and potential customers to read reviews of past experiences, check for a valid business license and verify the phone numbers and business addresses that are registered with the state in case a dispute arises.
If a Jeweler or Gemologist has a status of accredited on their trust report, the company listed on the trust report has had their website, business license, address and customer phone number verified and confirmed by ASJG using a combination of government and private third-party databases. Although a business's status can change, this is the most reliable way to confirm this information.
The American Society of Jewelers and Gemologists only recommends doing business with a Jeweler or Gemologist if they display the ASJG “Trusted” seal on their website.
If a Jeweler or Gemologist has a status of Not Accredited by ASJG on their trust report, it simply means the company listed on the trust report has NOT had their website, business license, address and customer phone number verified by ASJG.
This status should in no way express or imply that ASJG believes that the company listed on the trust report is a fraud or that any of their information or licenses are not valid.
This status only means that ASJG has not yet had a chance to review the company listed in the report.
If the business has submitted a membership application and it was rejected for any reason, this status will also display.
Please keep in mind that the information we provide should not be considered reliable as much of it is submitted by previous customers and users and many businesses do not feel the need to provide information to reporting agencies like ASJG. As a result all information provided should simply be used as an unreliable reference. Consumers should confirm all information with the business itself before making any decisions.
