AIGS Adds 360-Degree Video Gem View to Reports

(PRESS RELEASE) BANGKOK – The Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences (AIGS) Lab Co has added a 360-degree video gem view to its Full Reports and Master Gemstone Reports for stones weighing more than 5 carats.

“This is a great tool for our clients as the 360-degree view makes it easier for them to sell their gemstones,” said Kennedy Ho, chairman of AIGS.

The AIGS Lab, which is based in the Jewelry Trade Center in Bangkok, serves the gem and jewelry industry and the public with a comprehensive range of gemstone and jewelry analysis reports, including rubies, sapphires and emeralds.

The Lab grades, when possible, colored gemstones and diamonds for quality and produces reports to enable both the trade and public to assess their quality for potential purchase.

The AIGS belongs to The Gem Alliance, an informal grouping of gem identification labs, launched by Kennedy Ho, which encourages sharing of research and information.

The members of the Gem Alliance are: Kennedy Ho, Chairman, Asian Institute of Gemological Science, Bangkok, Thailand; Franck Notari, Director, GGTL Laboratories Switzerland, Geneva, Switzerland; Dr. Thomas Hainschwang, Director, GGTL Laboratories Liechtenstein, Balzers, Liechtenstein; Masaki Furuya, President, Japan Germany Gemmological Laboratory, Yamanashi-ken, Japan; Aurélien Delaunay, Director, Laboratoire Français de Gemmologie, Paris, France; and Dr. Emmanuel Fritsch, Professor, Université de Nantes and Institut des Matériaux Jean Rouxel, Nantes, France.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
