AGS Creates Virtual Guild

The American Gem Society has created the virtual GoTo Guilds in an effort to bring the jewelry industry together online.

“GoTo Guilds is not meant to replace our traditional guild meetings that the society has around the country,” Laura Stanley, international guild chair, said in statement. “Originally, the intention of the guilds was a way for our members in remote areas to have a meeting, albeit virtually. We quickly realized that with the breadth of educational topics we can offer, though, members of our traditional guilds might also want to attend these virtual meetings.”

The first GoTo Guilds meeting will be held July 8 at 9 a.m. PST. It will include a presentation by executive director of AGS Laboratories Peter Yantzer and is open to nonmembers. Registration information is available here

Yantzer’s presentation, “Light Performance 101,” will be an in-depth introduction to AGS’ light performance cut-grade system.
