In February we announced results from the inaugural IGI JEWEL Jewelry Design Contest. We have shared the winners and finalists several at a time in prior posts. Now we are pleased to feature all 26 creations together, bringing our coverage of this uplifting event to a close.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world's largest developer of voluntary international standards, has certified IGI with the ISO 17025 accreditation for lab-grown diamonds, making IGI's laboratories the world's first to hold ISO accreditation for both natural and lab-grown diamonds.
IDEX was among the first jewelry industry news outlets to cover IGI's unprecedented partnership with Diamond Standard, an entity which has received regulatory approval to offer the world's only market traded diamond commodity - the Diamond Standard Coin.
More than 700 creatives entered the first IGI JEWEL Jewelry Design Contest. Today we are pleased to showcase the work of all seven of our spectacular winning creatives, accompanied by additional design photos and promotional materials.
