In­ter­na­tional Ge­mo­log­i­cal In­sti­tute For­ays Into Jaipur

Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

The In­ter­na­tional Ge­mo­log­i­cal In­sti­tute (IGI) launched its first test­ing lab­o­ra­tory and ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tute in Jaipur, one of the most ac­tive and glob­ally recog­nised gem and jew­ellery mar­kets.

Un­til now, man­u­fac­tur­ers and re­tail­ers in Jaipur and its neigh­bour­ing ar­eas were ser­viced through IGI’s New Delhi head­quar­ters. The in­sti­tute’s launch in the pink city was a strate­gic decision in re­sponse to the de­mand from and ever-in­creas­ing po­ten­tial of this mar­ket. Lo­cated on M.I. Road, one of the city’s main thor­ough­fares, the new in­de­pen­dent cen­tre will serve clients from Ra­jasthan and North In­dia.

“We are de­lighted to ex­pand into an area that holds such a strong, his­toric con­nec­tion with the in­dus­try,” said IGI In­dia man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Tehmasp Printer. “Jaipur has al­ways been a ma­jor mar­ket for us, which we have pre­vi­ously served through our New Delhi branch. In re­cent years, we have con­tem­plated a ven­ture into Jaipur and are pleased it has fi­nally hap­pened.”

The Jaipur lab­o­ra­tory is IGI’s ninth in In­dia, along­side Mumbai, Kolkata, New Delhi, Hy­der­abad, Su­rat, Ahmed­abad, Thrissur and Chen­nai. With this ad­di­tion, IGI not only in­tends to ex­pand its client ser­vice port­fo­lio and reach, but will also pro­mote its fore­most ob­jec­tive of rais­ing aware­ness about the im­por­tance of gem and jew­ellery cer­ti­fi­ca­tion.

Printer con­tin­ued, “We hope the city will wel­come us with open arms, and in turn, IGI prom­ises to up­hold and main­tain our qual­ity stan­dards and quest for per­fec­tion.”

In ad­di­tion to the in­sti­tute’s full scope of grad­ing re­ports, IGI’s re­spected and com­pre­hen­sive coloured stone re­ports will be a key of­fer­ing as Jaipur is known for the man­u­fac­tur­ing of pre­cious and semi-pre­cious stones. Sim­i­larly, the IGI School of Gemol­ogy will be piv­otal in pro­vid­ing high-qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion to area man­u­fac­tur­ers, re­tail­ers and jew­ellery en­thu­si­asts.
