AIGS & GGTL Announce Launch of ‘Gem Alliance’


The Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences Laboratory and GGTL announced today that they are joining forces to form the Gem Alliance, a cooperation based on the sharing of information and gemological data.

The decision was reached between AIGS Lab chairman Kennedy Ho and the founders of GGTL, Franck Notari and Dr. Thomas Hainschwang.

Commenting on the Gem Alliance, Kennedy Ho said, “We recognized that by working together, we make our labs stronger, which led to the decision to form this alliance.”

The AIGS Lab, based in Bangkok, serves the gem and jewelry industry and the public alike with a comprehensive range of gemstone and jewelry analysis reports. Founded by the Ho Group, AIGS will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2018.

GGTL Laboratories (GemLab and GemTechLab), based in Geneva and Liechtenstein, is a 20 year old, full-service, independent gemological testing lab. Founded and managed by renowned gemological experts and researchers Franck Notari and Dr. Thomas Hainschwang, GGTL’s team of professional gemologists provide the complete range of lab services for diamonds, gemstones and pearls, with specialist focus on a number of advanced fields of research, including fancy colored diamonds and synthetic diamond detection.
