GCAL Acquires Gemprint

The Palmieri Group, owner of the Gem Certification &
Assurance Lab Inc. (GCAL), recently completed its cash purchase of all assets
related to Gemprint, announced May 5.

Gemprint was formerly owned by Collector’s Universe, which
at one point also owned GCAL, until the Palmieri Group bought
it back in 2009

Assets acquired included all of Gemprints’ worldwide
patents, trademarks, copyrights, as well as developmental prototypes, advanced
software, and databases.

GCAL long utilized Gemprint technology to audit and support
country of origin authenticity of diamonds. All GCAL graded diamonds are
“gemprinted” and stored in its Diamond ID International Database.

Angelo W. Palmieri, president of Gemprint, will handle and
coordinate all Gemprint sales, service, and contractual agreements.

Gemprint has also redesigned its instrumentation. For more information, click here.
