The accompanying Faculty Coordinators were Mr.Rahul Desai, Mrs.Renu Punjani and Mrs.Geeta Poojari. The students visited Kiran Gems Manufacturing Unit on 19th August, 2019, which is the World & Largest Manufacturer of Natural Diamonds and India’s Premier Diamantaire. In the first lap the students accompanied by their faculty members were taken on a guided tour of the Factory. Students were informed about the company- its history and products. They learnt practical knowledge of diamond manufacturing - from rough to polished & hands-on understanding of the industrial handling and some of the automated process.

The visit was followed by an excursion to the Kiran Hospital in Surat as well as the Local Diamond Market. The Industrial Visit was followed by a tour to De Beers Group Industry Services (Laboratory), Surat on 20th August, 2019, which is the most high tech and the largest Laboratory of De Beers Group in the World. They were showcased how a diamond is graded
using top of the line machines, as well as different researches which take place at the laboratory to open new horizons in the gems and jewellery industry.

Students were even lucky to see the Forevermark Diamonds, how precisely they are graded and the logo is inscribed on the diamonds, Forevermark which is a diamond brand from De Beers Group, provides diamonds that are beautiful, rare and responsibly sourced.

Jonathan Kendall, President of The Forevermark Diamond Institute, De Beers Group Industry Services and De Beers Group Institute of Diamonds said: ‘We are delighted we have been hosting our education partner IIG in our largest, state-of-the art laboratory, and proud to be showcasing our proprietary technology’.

To sum up, the trip was a learning experience wherein the students were mesmerized by both human and divine creation.
