The Gem Testing Laboratory, Jaipur, operated by India’s Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) for 48 years at Rajasthan Chamber Bhawan, M.I. Road, has taken a leap, turning into a world-class laboratory, with infrastructure on a par with most of the internationally established and renowned gemmological laboratories.
The laboratory is now housed in a sprawling 10,000 sq ft area, located in the premises of the Indian Institute of Gems & Jewellery, Sitapura, Jaipur.
Mr. Colin Shah, Chairman, GJPEC, said, “Keeping in step with India’s ambition to become the world’s jewellery manufacturing centre of choice, the Council has upgraded GTL Jaipur with state-of-the-art infrastructure, thereby ensuring in-house testing and grading capabilities of the highest standards for our manufacturers.
“The broadening of the portfolio of services will enable us to keep building consumer trust and confidence in the jewellery category.”
