AIGS has added a report for “jedi” spinel that aims to set quality standards for the trade term.
“Retailers and dealers commonly utilize trade names as a marketing strategy to make colored gemstones more enticing and sellable; however, they might use trade names from their perspectives and perceptions,” AIGS Chairman Kennedy Ho said.
"With a unified standard, a trade name can root deeper in the market. By launching the Jedi Spinel Grading Report, AIGS intends to address discrepancies of the quality standard by comprehensive gemological and quality analysis.”
