ISG Graduate Support Programs
Global Claims Associates Registry
All ISG Registered Gemologist Appraisers and Registered Gemologists are listed in the Global Claims Associates Registry that is provided to the insurance and legal industries.
Introduction to the Insurance Industry
The ISG offers a special program to help get our Graduates started in their professional careers. This starts with a formal letter of introduction from the Global Claims Associates office to insurance agents and adjusters in your area.
Introduction to Law Firms in your area
Our many years of working in jewelry related litigation with law firms in the US and Europe gives us the unique perspective of how to help you get going with your professional career working with law firms. Jewelry related litigation and legal assistance is an ongoing need for law firms.
Expert Witness Training and Support
Through our Global Claims Associates expertise, the ISG has many decades of experience working with major law firms to provide expert witness services. Being an expert witness entails far more than most gemologists realize. With our many years serving as an expert witness we can bring our knowledge and experience to our graduates.
Advanced Lab Support
At the ISG we realize that most gemologists and jewelry appraisers do not have the resources for the equipment and expertise to offer advanced gemological testing for your clients. Trying to pay the major labs for services is costly in both time and money. For this reason the ISG maintains a fully equipped advanced gemological laboratory that is at your service.
We believe that jewelry appraisers and gemologists should follow the same professional guidelines for maintaining credentials as the licensed insurance agents, adjusters, and legal professionals with whom we work. As a result we provide our graduates with a 2 year recertification course that helps ensure you that you are keeping up with the latest developments in the industry.
