IGI Opens New Fa­cil­ity At Bharat Di­a­mond Bourse

Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

The In­ter­na­tional Ge­mo­log­i­cal In­sti­tute (IGI) launched a new full-fledged sort­ing and screen­ing fa­cil­ity in Mum­bai at the Bharat Di­a­mond Bourse (BDB) on Oc­to­ber 16th. Lo­cated at Tower FW in the ex­change, the space will serve as an ex­ten­sion of IGI’s ex­ist­ing lab­o­ra­tory ser­vices in the city. Stream­lin­ing the eval­u­a­tion process, trade per­son­nel will also be able to drop their parcels at the fully op­er­a­tional of­fice from 9 am to 6 pm and col­lect them once the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion process is com­plete.

Anoop Me­hta, pres­i­dent of the BDB led the in­au­gu­ra­tion along­side Me­hul Shah, vice pres­i­dent, BDB; Ashish Me­hta, part­ner, Kan­ti­lal Cho­ta­lal; San­jay Kothari, chair­man, Gem & Jewellery Skill Coun­cil of In­dia (GJSCI); Ra­jesh Lakhani, di­rec­tor, Ki­ran Gems; and Mi­lan Parekh of Ma­hen­dra Broth­ers.

“We are very pleased to be of­fer­ing our ser­vices at such a key lo­ca­tion,” said Ramit Ka­pur, gen­eral man­ager, IGI In­dia. “Our new fa­cil­ity fea­tures the lat­est iden­ti­fi­ca­tion equip­ment, en­abling us to ad­dress the trade’s queries per­tain­ing to syn­thetic di­a­monds, which is a vi­tal need of late.”

“The goal of the fa­cil­ity at the bourse is to help di­a­mond pro­duc­ers ex­pe­ri­ence a quicker and more ef­fi­cient cer­ti­fi­ca­tion process with IGI,” said Tehmasp Printer, manag­ing di­rec­tor, IGI In­dia. “With real-time screen­ing, trade pro­fes­sion­als can now have their melee parcels checked for con­tam­i­na­tion of syn­thetic di­a­monds, if any. As a trusted in­de­pen­dent gem­mo­log­i­cal in­sti­tute, we are hon­oured to con­tinue to pro­vide these ben­e­fi­cial ser­vices for the bustling jewellery in­dus­try in Mum­bai.”
