IGI has recently partnered with The Jewelers Circle, offering 10% discounts on IGI New York’s Appraisal and Jewelry Identification report services. All registered members are eligible for these discounts and will receive redemption instructions from The Jewelers Circle.
Connecting Professionals Worldwide
Modeled after industry trade shows, The Jewelers Circle is a new trading platform designed to connect jewelry suppliers, dealers and retailers for the purpose of meeting, networking and trading vintage and modern jewelry. Membership is restricted to verified industry professionals.
Dual Benefit before April 1
The newly formed International Antique Jewelers Association (IAJA) is sponsoring membership for new exhibitor members of The Jewelers Circle prior to April 1, 2021. This presents a dual opportunity for sellers who want to exhibit on the platform while taking advantage of of this new IGI partner benefit.
The Importance of Grading
IGI recognizes the need for fine jewelry estate pieces which have been in circulation to have accurate, reliable independent appraisals prior to changing hands. As the only worldwide gemological institute serving consumer protection by evaluating and grading finished jewelry creations, as well as loose gemstones, IGI is delighted to extend this opportunity to verified members of The Jewelers Circle.
A steady increase in online shopping, attributable to the pandemic, has created a growing need worldwide for more transparency and authenticity among sellers. For this reason, eBay India announced an association with IGI last year through which eBay sellers have their products independently graded by IGI at competitive prices, empowering confidence for consumer-buyers.
