RAPAPORT... De Beers grading subsidiary, the International Institute of Diamond Grading & Research (IIDGR), has partnered with the U.K.’s National Association of Jewellers (NAJ) to offer its members preferential terms at its U.K. laboratory.

“Working with bodies such as the NAJ, IIDGR hopes to bring consistency, accuracy and increased security to the diamond sector,” said Jonathan Kendall, IIDGR’s president. “Grading is of central importance to consumer confidence and we therefore see our offer as a great fit with the work of the NAJ.”

The partnership gives NAJ members access to a “first-class diamond grading service at the very best rates,” said Michael Rawlinson, the trade body’s chief executive officer.
