The International Gemological Institute (IGI) has shifted operations to a larger location in Karol Bagh, the central jewelry hub of New Delhi. The move serves to address a larger market of jewellers in Northern India. IGI extends its valuable services to a larger audience in North India with educational programs for professionals, gem enthusiasts and jewellery traders through the IGI School of Gemology. It also provides bigger classrooms, introduces diamond courses, and accommodate more students from important cities like Amritsar, Ludhiana, Meerut, Raipur and Chandigarh. With this focus on education, IGI aims to nurture young talent. The new office will also provide diamond and diamond jewellery certification

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Tehmasp Printer, Managing Director IGI India said, “We are delighted to announce this move within Karol Bagh to facilitate better certification and educational services. Our Karol Bagh laboratory accommodates a large group of qualified professionals whose skillful hands have raised the benchmark for IGI in North India. We are confident that our School of Gemology and international standards for certification services will be valued by potential customers in New Delhi and will further expand our footprint in North India.” Printer elaborated, “Leading jewelers across North India avail of IGI’s expert services via its mobile laboratory facility that certifies diamond jewellery on-site at showrooms. Jewellers request IGI jewelry certificates because they provide an independent guarantee that is, in turn, appreciated by consumers.”

Realizing the potential of New Delhi as one of the biggest fine jewellery markets, IGI started its lab operations in 2007 and since then, has successfully carried out various services including the identification and grading of loose diamonds, colored stones and mounted jewelry, among many others. IGI is the only gemological laboratory in the country to be awarded ISO Accreditation/IEC 17025:2005 for “standard grading & certification processes,” further reinforcing the exacting standards that IGI has set since it entered India in 1999.
