The International Gemological Institute (IGI) inaugurated its new offices at Mumbai’s Capital Bandra-Kurla Complex, on June 11, in the intent to better serve the gem and jewellery industry as it gradually moves its center of operations to the new Diamond Bourse.

The inaugural event hosted guests of honor - Vipul Shah, chairman of the Gems and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC), IGI Worldwide Co-CEO Roland Lorie and other prominent industry members.

From its new offices, IGI will offer full industry services, with an entirely new customer experience, including Tatkal, a special one-day option for urgent deliveries. There will also be services like pick-up and drop-off at both its Bourse locations and at customers’ offices. Accuracy and service have always been cornerstones at IGI and will be further reinforced at the new premises.

IGI services are now available at four Mumbai locations, in addition to 10 labs across India – certification of loose stones and jewelry offered at The Capital; mobile lab grading services for ZaveriBazaar and surrounding areas remain at Opera House; IGI School of Gemology operates from Opera House and special courses are also offered at Bandra-Kurla; IGI MIDC will continue its jewelry certification services, as well as IGI Seepz’s services for the export markets. Additionally, mobile labs will be operational from all IGI offices. IGI offices spread across Mumbai occupy a total of 50,000 sq.ft space.

“The Bandra-Kurla office will offer state-of-the-art facilities, upgraded systems and convenient delivery options for our clients,” said Tehmasp Printer, managing director, IGI India. “Operating full-service facilities at four prime locations in Mumbai, we offer the competitive advantage of being closer to diamantaires’ offices, as well as jewelry manufacturers’ factories. Our singular focus is to offer better and more efficient services.”

IGI first established a laboratory in India in 1999, when third-party certification and international grading standards had not yet been fully introduced in the region. Since its inception it has also instructed a significant cross-section of the industry – from manufacturers, to sorters and polishers. To date, tens of thousands of people have enrolled in IGI’s courses. Today, the Indian diamond industry serves the global diamond pipeline – including mining, manufacturing and retail – and IGI is proud to have played an integral and leading role in its growth.
