International Diamond Laboratories has concluded its series of launch events with the opening of its Antwerp office Monday, during the second day of the Antwerp Diamond Conference. More than 1,000 diamantaires and retailers have so far participated in the opening events in Mumbai, Hong Kong, Dubai, and Antwerp. All offices start their operations Monday.
The international launch tour of IDL began in Mumbai at the India International Jewellery Show before heading to the Hong Kong Jewellery & Watch Fair. The Dubai headquarters of IDL at the Jewellery & Gemplex and a secondary Dubai branch in the Gold Souk area of the city were officially launched earlier this month.
“The reactions we received from the trade have been incredibly encouraging,” said Peter Meeus, chief executive officer of IDL at the Antwerp launch event. “It underscores the need in the market for services such as IDL offers.”
In Antwerp, a banner covering the entire Gembel House was unveiled this week.
IDL’s product range includes a Diamond Certificate and a Compact Diamond Certificate that receive a complementary Digital Certificate as well as a 2C Color Certificate.
