RAPAPORT... The Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A) will provide education in Japan through the Japan Gem Society (JGS). The newly launched JGS, formerly the Institute of Gem Culture, is a long-established Gem-A teaching center acting through VO-GAAJ, which now operates under the auspices of the Japan Jewelry Craft School. The agreement  was finalized in February.

Gem-A's chief executive, Jack Ogden, said, ''Japan is a major player on the world jewelry stage and an important market for Gem-A. I am delighted that we have been able to cement this relationship between Gem-A and JGS and we look forward to helping to grow access to excellent gem-education in Japan.''

Akira Ito, JGS's chairperson, added, ''JGS has been operating as a Gem-A teaching center since the 1980s. With this new collaboration between JGS and the Japan Jewelry Craft School, and the agreement of Gem-A, we now can introduce a wider audience to Gem-A’s internationally respected courses.''
