RAPAPORT... The International Gemological Institute (IGI) recently concluded its first polished diamond class in Guadalajara, Mexico, in conjunction with Centro de Diseño y Desarrollo de la Industria de Joyeria y Plateria (CEDIJ) or “The Center for Design and Development of Jewelry and Silver Industry.”

The course took place February 21 through February  26 at The Jewelry Center at Guadalajara World Trade Center with 16 students and three IGI instructors.

Due to the success of the course and student feedback, IGI will offer the course in Guadalajara again April 4 through April 9.

''IGI’s inaugural course in Guadalajara proved to be an exciting and welcomed endeavor,” said IGI president  Jerry Ehrenwald. ''Working with CEDIJ, we cannot imagine having completed the course with a better outcome. We look forward to hosting this course again for new students and expanding educational offerings, including our rough diamond and gemstone identification courses, in support of continued gemological learning experiences for these recent graduates.”

IGI’s polished diamond course aims to equip students with the skills to identify and grade diamonds according to the one internationally accepted system for diamond grading. The course provides a thorough understanding of worldwide grading standards in a fast-paced setting, making it ideal for individuals with tight time constraints. It is kept to a small number of students to ensure individual attention and an optimal learning environment.
