(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.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
