IGI Opens Larger Offices in Karol Bagh

26 february 2014

The International Gemological Institute (IGI) recently moved its operations to a larger location in Karol Bagh, the central jewelry hub of New Delhi, according to press release obtained by Rough&Polished.
Realizing the potential of New Delhi as one of the biggest fine jewelry 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.
With its new setup at Karol Bagh, IGI now extends its services to a larger audience in North India with educational programs for professionals, gem enthusiasts and jewelry traders through the IGI School of Gemology. IGI also places special emphasis on education by providing bigger classrooms as well as introducing diamond courses and will welcome more students from important cities like Amritsar, Ludhiana, Meerut, Raipur and Chandigarh.
Speaking on the occasion, Tehmasp Printer, the 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.”
