(DUBAI) - The International Gemological Institute (IGI) completed its first Jewelry Design course in Bahrain on May 18, 2013. The 12-day training was conducted in association with the Bahrain Ministry of Industry and Commerce.
The IGI Jewelry Design program teaches individuals to confidently express their creativity in all aspects of jewelry designing and manufacturing. The Bahrain students were trained to render their designs by using different methods of illustration for gemstones, settings and metal textures. The course also enumerated various stages of manufacturing, price estimation and quality control. Prominent members of the trade and Bahrain’s leading designers attended the course.
“IGI emphasizes education and imparting knowledge, which raises awareness, leads to greater transparency and ultimately increases consumer confidence,” said IGI Managing Director Nico D’Haemer. “Since its establishment in Dubai 12 years ago, IGI education and certification have greatly helped diamond traders by authenticating the quality of diamonds and gemstones.”
“We aim to better serve the industry by continuously providing well-informed and fully-trained professionals,” continued D’Haemer. “IGI is grateful for the support of the Bahrain Ministry of Industry and Commerce and looks forward to future collaborations.”
