The International Gemological Institute (IGI) known for its supreme position in the gemological world, is the largest independent laboratory for testing and grading finished jewellery, natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds and gemstones.
Operating across 18 laboratory locations globally and helping thousands of new jewellery professionals graduate from its 14 schools set over the world, IGI is the result of continuous research, support and synergy with professionals and consumers alike.
Cementing its place in the publishing world, IGI will be seen launching its pan-Indian magazine ORIGIN in August and invites celebs to participate in a cover shoot, adorned in IGI’s enchanting diamonds and become a part of the historical and sensational launch of ORIGIN.
IGI’s magazine, ORIGIN, will be seen helping manufacturers, distributors, sellers and consumers, who in turn will learn more about the jewellery trade and industry.
Its unique position makes it the only worldwide gemological institute serving consumer protection by evaluating and grading finished jewellery creations, as well as loose diamonds and coloured gemstones.
IGI pioneered grading standards for “Hearts & Arrows” diamonds, cut so precisely that their facet reflections overlap when viewed in a reflective scope. Hearts & Arrows precision is typically associated with Excellent-Ideal cuts of superior quality. IGI was the first institute to offer co-branded reports to Hearts & Arrows diamond manufacturers and sellers and has become the preferred authority for Hearts & Arrows diamonds sold in Asia.
