Dimexon-Eurostar donates $1 million to GIA India

Diamond manufacturing and trading group Dimexon Diamonds Ltd., Mumbai, India, and Eurostar Diamond Traders N.V., Antwerp, has become one of Gemological Institute of America India’s Founding Benefactors with a $1 million gift to the Institute’s Endowment for Education in India.

India, which is the largest producer of polished diamonds in the world by volume, sends the second-largest number of students to GIA for industry education.

The contribution means Dimexon-Eurostar will join GIA’s elite group of Million Dollar Roundtable donors, and company representatives will be inducted into the prestigious League of Honor next year. A reception will be held in Mumbai July 20 to honor the group. GIA will also rename the student plaza at its world headquarters in Carlsbad, California, the “Dimexon-Eurostar Student Plaza” in appreciation of the contribution.
