PGA & PG Graduates List

The PGA or Planetary Gemologists Association, named in Sanskrit as the “Graha-anukul ratna-visheshajna parishad,” is a web based Institute of Planetary Gemology, i.e., the Vedic “Nava ratna” or 9 GEMS system of metaphysical birthstones. Planetary Gemology is a combination of four (4) Vedic Sciences, viz., gemology, astrology, ayurveda, and jewelry or talisman making.

The PGA has a 63 question test for certification as a “PGA” or Planetary Gem Advisor. The PGA test is open book with no time limit so the scoring is strict. All answers can looked up and most can be found on the PGA’s WWW site at http://www.p-g-a.org/pga-course.html; successful applicants will receive the “PGA” (Planetary Gem Advisor) Diploma. A successful PGA who is also a ‘certified’ mundane GEMOLOGIST will be awarded the rare “PG” or PLANETARY GEMOLOGIST Diploma (pictured). Currently there are 95 PGA Graduates and 13 PG Graduates.
