The IGI School of Gemology has been instrumental in conducting professional grading courses across India since 1999. The team of instructors at IGI has successfully trained over 10,000 students under international standards.

The students come from various fields -- ranging from recent college graduates and children of diamantaires who are planning to join the business to  freelance designers seeking to upgrade skills. 

New students are introduced to the latest trends of designing in the domestic as well as international markets. The portfolios that the students create during their training reflect a mix of ideas taken from nature, history, man-made materials, gemstones, metals etc., thus bringing out the creativity in every student. They have first hand exposure to practical jewelry making, budgeting and gaining an understanding of consumer psychology in shopping for jewelry -- all aspects that give one confidence to face the markets independently.

At IGI School of Gemology we understand the pulse of the industry and, accordingly, impart expertise to every student, adding value to their future careers. I am very happy to present these diplomas to the students who have excelled in the program and are now ready to apply this education in their careers and see the benefits unfold.”
