"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."
Charlie Bernheiser IGS Member

"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."

"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

"It doesn't matter how much you think you about gems, you never stop learning"

"You know the best thing that I've learned from your great course is that it doesn't matter how much you think you about gems, you never stop learning. Each day there is something more to learn, and it will never stop. Thank you for all the help, education and support that you give IGS members."
Peter Checkley IGS Pro Member
