IGI launches two new associations


The International Gemological Institute (IGI) launched two new associations last week during a one-day workshop.


The workshop was held Wednesday, June 14th, at the renovated Centro Orafo in Caserta, which is located roughly 30km north of Naples. It was held under the brand-new banner of the International Gemological Institute (IGI) Italy Association, which gathers the five territorial districts actively involved in implementing the programs of IGI’s educational department in Italy. The new association represents the world’s largest independent certification institute focused on gem and jewelry education in Italy.


Additionally, IGI debuted its Italy Alumni Association at the workshop. The Alumni Association will promote professional connections through devoted websites as well as through a bilingual (Italian and English) gemological review.
