(PRESS RELEASE) ANTWERP, BELGIUM – The International Gemological Institute announced the launch of igialumni-italy.org, a website designed for its Italy Alumni Association. The site is written in Italian and provides gem-related course information, relevant articles, networking opportunities and upcoming events. The new website is also accessible through IGI’s main website, igi.org.

Organized into four main sections, the site offers an IGI Alumni Association tab housing material regarding IGI Italy, an organizational chart and benefits of joining the association, including how to join and a list of events. The site’s training portion contains IGI Italy course offerings, including a comprehensive list of classes such as Diamond – Practical Exploration, Rough Diamond – Qualitative Analysis and Evaluation, and more. A helpful course calendar details when and where certain programs are offered. Users are also able to find out more about IGI’s five Italian locations: Ascoli Piceno, Cavalese (TN), Marcianise (CE), Rome, Trecastagni (CT).

“We’re very excited to be able to more effectively communicate IGI Italy course offerings,” said Luigi Costantini, honorary president of IGI Italy. “Site visitors will now be able to easily learn more about Italy-specific courses and collaborate with other industry professionals.”

The website also includes a gemologist section, where users can find and connect with accredited gemologists, graduate gemologists, gemologists of other institutes and gemology students. The Gempedia section houses news and articles authored by IGI Italy’s five institutions. Its accompanying gallery, which showcases beautiful, close-up photographs of colored gemstones, is spearheaded by Costantini and was created to help students more easily understand the main internal characteristics of gems.

“We saw a need to provide more information to prospective students, current students, graduate gemologists and alumni at our Italy location,” said Roland Lorie, IGI co-CEO. “Through the new Italy-focused site, we can tailor content to better suit our target audiences, making an enhanced experience for all.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
