Tiffany Stevens to Head IGI North America


Tiffany Stevens, who headed the Jewelers Vigilance Committee (JVC) for seven years, has been named chief business officer and head of sustainability for the International Gemological Institute’s North America branch.

She takes over from Avi Levy, who became president of IGI North America in 2019.

Stevens served as president, CEO, and general counsel of JVC from 2017 to mid-June. She has been succeeded in that position by JVC deputy counsel Sara Yood.

IGI was purchased by Blackstone Group for $569.5 million in 2023. Tehmasp Printer remains its global CEO.

“This is an exciting business where technology, finesse, and trust converge,” said Stevens in a statement. “I look forward to working with the outstanding IGI team to advance gemology education, promote transparency and responsibility, and uphold our core values of scientific excellence and ethical accountability.”

Added Levy in the same statement: “It has been an honor to work with the IGI team to serve our customers and the industry. I extend my deepest appreciation to everyone for their support and collaboration during my time at IGI. Tiffany is a respected leader, and I have full confidence in her ability to drive the organization forward.”
