Underwood Jewelers' Awards

Underwood was the first jeweler east of the
Mississippi to be given this distinction of honor.

American Gem Society Triple Zero Award

Clayton Bromberg was presented the esteemed Triple Zero Award during a special awards dinner at the Plaza Hotel in New York City.

The American Gem Society presents the Triple Zero Award annually to industry professionals that have given their time and talent to the betterment of the Society, their community and the jewelry industry. The honor is so named because a triple zero grade diamond is the highest grade a diamond can realize, and signifies an Ideal Cut diamond that is Internally Flawless and devoid of all color. A diamond like this is exceedingly rare in nature like the awards recipients.

The 2004 Robert M. Shipley Awards

The Robert M. Shipley Award is conferred annually by the American Gem Society upon a member for outstanding service to the society, for significant contributions to the science of gemology, or for exemplifying the high purposes, objectives and ideals of the society in the member’s own communities.

On April 13, 2004, this award was conferred upon C. Clayton Bromberg and Underwood Jewelers. Because of the company goal to be the best Jeweler in the South, not the biggest, Underwood’s has made a commitment to the professional development of their staff through the American Gem Society’s education department. As a result of this, Underwood’s has the largest number of credentialed jewelry professionals with American Gem Society titles east of the Mississippi River. Each of these jewelry professionals must re-win their title each year through a written examination.
