In response to a growing need for diamond screening in finished jewelry, IGI has launched a new Designer Appraisal Report. With more insurance companies requiring third-party appraisals for high-value articles, these independent reports will be useful protection for clients of quality-minded designers and brands.
IGI India recently certified a 14.60 carat lab grown diamond, reportedly the largest ever produced using the Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) growth method. The recorded weight surpasses the previous record-holder, certified by IGI last November, by nearly two carats.
Earlier this year Diamond Standard and IGI received regulatory approval to offer the world’s only market-traded diamond commodity. On August 20 Bloomberg's Alix Steel interviewed Cormac Kinney, Diamond Standard's Founder and CEO about the Diamond Standard Coin.
