International Colored Gemstone Association president Andrew Cody has been officially invited to advise CIBJO, the World Jewellery Confederation, Colored Stones Commission Steering Committee.
The CIBJO Colored Stones Commission works on industry nomenclature related to gemstones that lead to the establishment of CIBJO guidelines known as the Blue Book.
“I believe that our cooperation within this committee will bring a great success to our CIBJO Coloured Stones Commission and our industry, said Vichian Veerasaksri, president of the Commission.
CIBJO president Gaetano Cavalieri added, “I applaud the initiative to invite the President of ICA to this table. Andrew Cody is not only the head of ICA, but is also a very knowledgeable professional in our industry and will certainly make a great contribution.”
“This is a very important advancement in CIBJO—ICA relations, and was one of our goals to bring the two organizations closer together,” Cody said.
