Accredited Gemologists Association (AGA)

Established in 1974 by Antonio "Tony" Bonanno (an alumnae of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain), AGA was envisioned as a network for sharing gemological information and skills. Graduate gemologists of the Gemological Institute of America joined in 1975. Today the Accredited Gemologists Association counts among its members some of the worlds leading independent gemologists. In 2010, Lotus Gemology's Richard W. Hughes was awarded the AGA's coveted Antonio C. Bonanno Award for Excellence in Gemology.
