Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

The In­ter­na­tional In­sti­tute of Di­a­mond Grad­ing & Re­search (IIDGR), part of the De Beers Group of Com­pa­nies, an­nounced the agree­ment of a part­ner­ship with the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Jewellers (NAJ) for its di­a­mond grad­ing ser­vice in the UK, whereby NAJ mem­bers will ben­e­fit from pref­er­en­tial terms when they sub­mit di­a­monds to the IIDGR’s UK lab for di­a­mond grad­ing.

Com­ment­ing on the part­ner­ship, Jonathan Ken­dall, pres­i­dent, IIDGR, said: “Work­ing with bod­ies such as the NAJ, IIDGR hopes to bring con­sis­tency, ac­cu­racy and in­creased se­cu­rity to the di­a­mond sec­tor. Grad­ing is of cen­tral im­por­tance to con­sumer con­fi­dence and we there­fore see our of­fer as a great fit with the work of the NAJ. We look for­ward to work­ing with them and their mem­bers.”

Michael Rawl­in­son, CEO, NAJ, noted: “Mem­bers of the NAJ are set apart from the industry in gen­eral by their de­sire and en­deav­our to do their best, and this is their mark of qual­ity. This part­ner­ship al­lows our mem­bers to ac­cess this first­class di­a­mond grad­ing ser­vice at the very best rates, and I hope many mem­bers will see the re­sults for them­selves.”
