IIG Hosts Tete-A-Tete With Brazilian Entrepreneur Ali Pastorini
The International Institute of Gemology (IIG) hosted Ali Pastorini, co-owner of Del Lima Jewelry and president of Mujeres Brillantes, for an interactive session, which primarily revolved around women entrepreneurs in the male-dominated jewellery industry. Pastorini heads Mujeres Brillantes, an association which brings together approximately 1,000 women working in the gold and diamond trading sector, mainly from Latin America, as well as from Turkey, Spain, Italy and Germany. The mission of Mujeres Brillantes is to help women in the jewellery and watchmaking sectors consolidate their business in order to exchange professional skills and experience. She engaged in a lively discussion with the students and a few women entrepreneurs.
