The International Institute of Gemology (IIG), the city’s leading gemology institute hosted K Srinivasan, Chairman and Managing Director - Emerald Jewel Industries for an enlightening discussion. 

Srinivasan shared valuable insights about his illustrious journey through the jewellery industry. He started out as a salesman at a jewellery store in Coimbatore, at a monthly salary of Rs 100 in 1984. 34 years later, K. Srinivasan is the Managing Director of Emerald Jewel Industry India — Coimbatore’s largest jeweller, and a reputed name in South India. From jewellery retailers to aspiring designers, he guided each one of the students about building a lucrative career in the gems and jewellery industry.

Headed by Managing Director, Rahul Desai, IIG traces its roots to a cutting and polishing factory established by Kantilal Desai in 1965. The factory imparted valuable training to its 500-strong workforce and eventually transformed into a full-fledged gems and jewellery institute called Shri Rajendra Diamond Classes (SRDC) in the early 1980s.

The institute has already trained over 1,00,000 students from around the world since its inception and is affiliated with the University of Mumbai. While it now functions under the new brand identity of IIG, it continues to offer in-depth courses on gems, diamonds, jewellery designing and merchandising.
