RAPAPORT... The Natural Color Diamond Association (NCDIA) has formed an affiliation with an Asian gemological organization in an attempt to extend its support and educational services to the region.

The trade body will establish NCDIA Asia by partnering with the Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences (AIGS), it announced recently. AIGS president Barbara Wheat (pictured), who moved from NCDIA to the Bangkok-based organization in March, will lead the affiliation.

“Through this collaboration, AIGS will be our hub in Asia for expanding our education and relationships with wholesalers, retailers and consumers,” said NCDIA president Alan Bronstein. “Our headquarters will remain in New York, but our goal is to provide local support to our members in strategic areas of the world that offer great potential in expanding consumer interest in natural-color diamonds.”

AIGS will support NCDIA in creating online educational courses, which will be available from early 2018.
