RAPAPORT... The International Gemological Institute (IGI) has been designated curator-at-large for the Museum of Named Diamonds, a non-profit organization set up as a registry for the world’s named diamonds.

Curators assist the museum with the registration and naming of purchased diamonds, which includes “story collection” and helping consumers choose names for their gems, the IGI said. The curator-at-large designation is for national or international organizations doing a “significant” volume in the collection of diamond stories for the museum, the institute said.

The museum enables consumers to preserve their own named diamonds and stories, meaning a diamond can have a name even if it is not famous. The owner can register the diamond with the museum and gives it a name that fits with the story behind the gem.

“The Museum of Named Diamonds is focusing on the romance and symbolism of each diamond, and the unique story behind it – an important part of the diamond-ownership experience,” said Jerry Ehrenwald, the IGI’s president and chief executive officer. “We’re enthusiastic about helping consumers enjoy this added dimension.”

The curator program started in April. Participating retail jewelers are being named associate curators.
