(PRESS RELEASE) BANGKOK – The Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences (AIGS), a leading gemological laboratory, has identified fake gemstone reports bearing the AIGS logo in the gemstone market.

“We have found out that some people made fake reports with a working QR code,” said AIGS Chairman Kennedy Ho.

“The only way to be sure that a report is genuine is to check the AIGS website www.aigsthailand.com or to make an enquiry via email, with a photo of the report, to [email protected].”

AIGS, based in the Jewelry Trade Centre (JTC) in Bangkok, is a leading gemological laboratory and issues hundreds of gemstone reports every day.

Thailand is an important international hub in natural coloured gemstone manufacturing and trade.

“Some unscrupulous people have decided to rip off customers by using AIGS’s name. Indeed, they have created fake AIGS reports which look like genuine ones,” Kennedy Ho said.

“If you scan the QR code of the fake report, you will be directed to a website: www.aigsthailand.co, not “.com”.

“We urge anyone who believes they may be in possession of a fake AIGS gemstone report to check the AIGS website or to contact AIGS directly by sending an email to [email protected].”

Kennedy Ho added, “AIGS will be taking legal action to the highest extent of the law towards the perpetrators and those who use the fake reports with the intent to mislead others.”

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.
