"What a gift you give, passing this knowledge to those of us who are seekers"

"Just wanted to thank you for the fantastic adventure I have had since becoming a member of IGS. The quality of your Gemology Course is tops. Nice to know that such folks as you exist. What a gift you give, passing this knowledge along to those of us who are seekers."
Dr. John Parrott IGS Member

"IGS is a Godsend for me"

"I have been on the distant sidelines of the jewelry business for a long time with a great love of colored stones and working with gold. I must tell you that IGS is a Godsend for me, as I do not have the resources or the six months required to get a GG from the GIA now."

"What started as a hobby is now a small home business for my wife and I."

"I have never known or heard of an organization that offers so much for its members, and at such a low cost. What started as a hobby in 1998 and now is a small home business for my wife and I has been made so much easier by the information you supply. Thank you."
Ernest and Peggy Roisch Rainbow Rocks, LTD

"It's like a good who-done-it mystery. It just can't be "put down."

"You are one heck-of-a-writer. This course is so well written, that I'm convinced that anyone, even me, can understand and master this material. After having read the first four introductory articles, I find myself actually wanting more time to study. It's like a good who-done-it mystery. It just can't be "put down."
Joe Tulving IGS Pro Member
Becoming a Pro Member of IGS just made good sense for my business. The gemology resources are fantastic, and my profile lets potential customers know I am serious about colored gemstones. And frankly, if I get any exposure to potential customers it's a no-brainer.
