 The International Gemological Institute (IGI) has reopened several offices around the world following coronavirus-related closures, it said Thursday.

Its centers in Antwerp, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Bangkok, Tel Aviv, Dubai and Japan are now operational. It is carrying out certain remote services at its New York office, while operations at its locations in India vary according to needs and government instructions.

“We will continue following the strictest safety and health guidelines as we begin to support customers in person and offer services to help the diamond industry flourish again,” said IGI CEO Roland Lorie.

The global laboratory has adapted to the Covid-19 pandemic, developing remote programs for diamond suppliers and retailers, and providing educational options for industry professionals on several continents, it said.
