(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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
