(Press Release) ANTWERP, BELGIUM – The International Gemological Institute formally announced its diamond evaluation card, called the Diamond ID report. Unlike other reports where the diamond is kept in a vault and the report in a separate location, IGI’s Diamond ID report stores the evaluation and diamond together in a secure credit card-size casing.INSTORE IGI

International Gemological Institute has launched a diamond evaluation card.

The ID report contains security features and a Datamatrix, that once scanned, allows users to connect directly to IGI’s data system and confirm its authenticity. IGI introduced the report in April and has since successfully integrated the ID card as part of its services for diamond dealers and manufacturers, with feedback to date well exceeding initial expectations.

The report’s compact format was created to give users a more efficient and safe way to trade stones as it can be easily shipped or stored. The new format also comes at a lower cost, requires minimal office work on the back-end for trade industry professionals and the ID card is automatically printed once the gemologists have finished the grading process. Of note, each Diamond ID report is issued according to the strict international standards and security features to which IGI adheres.

“We created the Diamond ID report with a goal of making our evaluations easier to use and safer to transport,” said Roland Lorie, IGI co-CEO. “Bringing together the report and stone in one secure place will allow industry professionals to do their work more efficiently.”

Consumers will also benefit from the evolved report style. The Diamond ID report can be carried in a wallet, making it simple to transport a diamond for an insurance appraisal or trading purposes. It’s also an ideal format for keeping track of evaluations; if a diamond owner chooses to sell a jewel, both the stone and report are together, which is essential for a seamless trade or resale.

“We strive to give consumers peace of mind with our comprehensive reports,” said Jerry Ehrenwald, IGI co-CEO and president of IGI North & South America. “The new Diamond ID report will help all our users stay organized and feel protected. We’re proud to introduce a product that will help both trade professionals and consumers.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
