Why Buy from Bailey’s
Bailey’s Fine Jewelry has been in business since 1948 and is recognized as one of the most respected jewelers in the world. We are locally owned and operated with five members of the Bailey family actively involved with our patrons and staff on a daily basis. Bailey’s also has nine Graduate Gemologists on staff.
We are members of the elite American Gem Society (AGS), which is dedicated to consumer protection and gemological expertise. Since 1934, the mission of the AGS has been to protect the consumer. AGS promotes the highest professional standards of ethics, education and service in the jewelry industry. In fact, only five percent of jewelers, designers, appraisers and suppliers nationwide have met the exacting standards for membership in the AGS; and all titleholders must be recertified annually.
Of more than 35,000 jewelers in the United States, less than 500 have the prestige of having an AGS Accredited Gem Lab. Bailey’s has had an Accredited Gem Lab for more than 20 years. This means that we have a well-stocked library of gemological reference books, AGS Master Diamonds used for comparison in grading diamond color and several highly specialized instruments essential in providing complete and accurate gemological services. We also offer the finest educational and technological support available for appraising, testing and grading diamonds as well as pearls and colored gemstones.
