AIGS adds 360-degree video gem view to reports
BANGKOK, May 2019 – 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; Aurelien Delaunay, Director, Laboratoire Francais de Gemmologie, Paris, France; and Dr. Emmanuel Fritsch, Professor, Universite de Nantes and Institut des Materiaux Jean Rouxel, Nantes, France.
