ICA Membership


The International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA) is a not-for-profit association representing an international membership of dedicated miners, cutters, and suppliers of genuine, natural, colored gemstones. There are over 700 dedicated members from around the globe.

Being an ICA member means being part of this elite group, whose membership promotes the understanding and appreciation of colored gemstones, including and requiring ethical and socially responsible practices, with proper and full disclosure of any treatments and enhancements.

Support of the ICA strengthens the gem industry, which, in turn, creates a more trustworthy industry for consumers to purchase beautiful gems.
