Mumbai, India, January 11, 2015: The International Gemological Institute (IGI) is one of the world’s leading gemological organizations. The company has 17 branches in world diamond centers and thousands of regular customers who rely on its quality certification.
As part of the final quality-signature service that IGI provides its customer, it will soon be adding Segoma’s 3D images to all its dossiers (Certificates for stones 1ct and less).
Segoma is the leading supplier of 3D photography and display of diamonds. The company’s solutions are based on innovative patented technology that combines accurate mechanics, unique lighting solutions and top-of-the-line optics. Segoma’s images ensure a reliable and vivid alternative to the drawing of a generic diamond that appears today in common gemology certificates. Access to the images will be enabled by scanning the QR code on the certificate.
International Gemological Institute is the world’s most trusted name for the expert and impartial grading of diamonds, gemstones and jewelry. Gemstones should only change hands when accompanied by a certificate attesting to quality. Regardless of location or marketplace, an authentic IGI Laboratory Report is the common language of trust and confidence in the gemological world and should be considered an essential part of any transaction, says Mr. Litan Yahav on the announcement of the partnership between the two organisations.
Segoma, which also has branches in the main diamond trade centers around the world, operates photography centers from IGI’s branches as well. The cooperation will begin in India, and will then be expanded to other IGI branches.
With the success of Segoma in helping Indian Diamond exporters, the tie up between IGI and Segoma technologies is the right step in increasing the worldwide sales of the diamond industry. This will also help in the increase of inflow of valuable foreign exchange, said Dharmesh Padmanabhan, Country Head, Segoma Imaging Technologies.
This important collaboration will enable IGI customers to benefit from full visualization and in-depth inspection of diamonds, without having to physically see them. This is another milestone in Segoma becoming the international standard for diamonds visualization.
