The IDI has just uploaded a new video to the website from the inauguration of the new Israeli laboratory of the Gemological Institute of America, pride of the Israeli diamond industry. The event featured the Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman in attendance. Click on the link to see GIA president and CEO Donna Baker launch the celebrations.
The inauguration of a GIA lab in Israel allows significant time and monetary savings to be made for Israeli diamantaires. No longer will they have to wait a matter of weeks for a diamond to be shipped out of the country in order to be certified by the GIA.
