“GIA’s six decades of gemological research enables us to offer the new GIA Diamond Origin Report, which uses scientific matching to provide confirmation of a diamond’s geographic origin,” said GIA India and Middle East Managing Director Nirupa Bhatt.
She added, “This new service will help retailers provide peace of mind to consumers before they purchase. The origin information and many other marketing and training materials that GIA has made available can be used by jewellers to build trust and credibility with customers. We invite jewellery manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers to visit our booth and experience the journey of a diamond using the GIA Diamond Origin Report.”
