Jordan recently hosted its first programme by International Gemological Institute (IGI) School of Gemology. The programme was a Polished Diamond Grading Course conducted via the International Diamond Centre DIVA in Amman, in collaboration with COLLECTION magazine.

The course began on November 10, 2008 and spanned eight days, offering knowledge of the Four Cs, on how to grade clarity, colour and cut of diamonds using a multitude of diamond samples and gemological equipment like microscopes. The attending students were Jordanian trade professionals who will be qualified to enter the diamond industry after course completion on November 18. Graduates will be awarded the IGI Diploma in Polished Diamond Grading by the Ambassador of Belgium, Mr. Jo Indekeu.

IGI CEO Roland Lorié said that, “We at IGI recognise the importance of gemological education in burgeoning markets such as Jordan. Graduates from IGI’s School of Gemology possess valuable skills that directly translate to consumer confidence – something IGI works persistently to ensure”.

So far IGI’s School of Gemology, which is recognised internationally for its innovative curricula and invaluable learning experiences, has conducted its courses across Belgium, Italy, Spain, Thailand, U.S., Canada, Botswana, Dubai, Turkey, Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka and China, and plans to reach Mexico also. The School of Gemology has developed a unique intensive and hands-on learning method. The courses are given in more than 10 languages.
