Fabio Damico, Chief Executive Officer

“I can easily compare our Gem Lab to and Research Department to a spaceship. We can explore the unknown, we can easily face all the modern market challenges and, most important, win them.”

Lisa Greggio, Gemological Laboratory

“I never thought that my passion and experience for meteorites would play a
decisive role in GIG. Here we have widened the range of the Laboratory activity bringing the limits beyond the normal gemological context.”

Maya Musa, Research Department Director.

“Gemology has to be a science, not just a discipline. As gemologists have to be scientists. This is the future of gemology. Future that is already the present in GIG.”

Evanghelia Kountouraki , Luxury Academy Director

“I prepare the students to the most difficult challenge: life. The jewelery trade is a jungle, and all my students have to know not only how to survive, but also I to be a guide for others.”
