The International Gemological Institute (IGI), the first international lab established in India, commemorated its 15 year anniversary last week.

“Fifteen years ago, most local manufacturers and traders did not believe there was a demand for certification. The Indian diamond industry was focused solely on manufacturing, with all business decisions being made in Antwerp, Tel Aviv or New York,” said IGI's worldwide co-CEO, Roland Lorié. “By establishing our lab in India and training thousands of people in the industry, IGI has been a key player in establishing India as the primary trading hub in the world.”

He further stated, “India has become the world’s foremost diamond center and we are very proud to have been a significant part of this development. At the same time, there is still room for growth, so we look forward to many more years of continued success in the region.” Today, IGI India services the leading diamond traders, jewellers, jewellery showrooms and the most popular jewellery brands across the country and has substantially contributed to the overall growth of India’s diamond and jewellery industry.
