One of the most dynamic cities in India, Surat is at once known as the ‘Silk City’, ‘Diamond City’ and ‘Green City’ for its achievements in the respective avenues. Having said that, no other city surpasses it as the world’s largest diamond manufacturing, cutting and polishing centre, home to 5000 manufacturing units that include some of the most advanced and state-of-the-art units in the world. In fact, 95% of diamond cutting and polishing on the planet takes place in Surat.
However, that is no reason for it to stop innovating. The city is set up for another major boost in the diamond sector. In order to promote and ensure training in crafts, research, and marketing, the associations and cooperations in the Surat diamond industry have brought major diamond manufacturers under a single umbrella. The International Institute of Gemology (IIG), the renowned educational institution in the gems and jewellery industry since 1965, is collaborating with Finestar Educational Institute for the launch of state of an art Gem & Jewellery institute.
IIG has decided to open up one more branch in the heart of the diamond hub in the city – Gujarat Hira Bourse, Icchapore spread across 10,000 sq. ft. It is equipped with state-of-the-art modern equipment and amenities, providing a full-fledged educational training centre for learners of diamonds, gemstones and jewellery. Learners will find courses in diamond manufacturing and jewellery manufacturing, to name a couple. Each course is designed to go hand-in-hand with the prevalent standards in the industry to ensure real-world skills. IIG’s certificates are globally recognised and are perfect for entrepreneurs as well as anyone looking to start a flourishing career in the gems and jewellery industry.
