ELKO — Lina Blohm of Blohm Jewelers has successfully completed the annual American Gem Society recertification exam.

This mandatory exam was developed to maintain professional credentials, which demonstrates their ongoing commitment to the society’s mission of consumer protection through continued education and upholding the highest ethical standards.

Blohm earned this distinguished gemology credential following the completion of a course of study and examination. Every year, she is required to pass an exam encompassing the latest industry developments, including topics on gemology, business, technology, legal regulations and more.

“Nothing tells your customers that you are committed to their jewelry buying experience more than an AGS title,” said Scott Berg, CG, president of the American Gem Society Board of Directors. “It shows your dedication to professionalism and ongoing gemological education.”

Only one in 20 retail jewelers have chosen to meet the exacting standards required for membership.
