 Denver, CO, based appraiser Neil Beaty has become the 13th person to earn the ICGA title.

Neil Beaty earns ICGA title.
Neil Beaty

ICGA, or “Independent Certified Gemologist Appraiser” is the highest accreditation an appraiser can earn from the American Gem Society.  The distinction is paramount.  Prerequisites include the GIA Graduate Gemologist diploma as well as every other title issued by AGS; RJ, CG and CGA.

Earning the accolade is demanding and time-consuming.  It involves years of paperwork, training and testing.  Many people begin the process without completing it.  It is the only title in the jewelry appraisal industry where members are required to meet standards for independence.  A new firm must be elected by the existing membership and all ICGA’s are required to pass vision examinations, submit their appraisals for peer review and participate in an ongoing process of annual re-qualification to maintain current titles.  The ICGA badge is considered by many to be the top title bestowed by the strictest association in the jewelry industry.

Beaty's firm is the American Gem Registry in Denver, Colorado.
