The International Grown Diamond Association (IGDA) has announced the launch of IGDA 2.0, a complete revamp of the trade association originally formed in 2016, to serve and support the lab-grown diamond industry.

The IGDA 2.0 launch is led by the deployment of a new website, a broader based board of advisors, the development and distribution of consumer point of sale and promotional materials, sales associate training and the evolution of a network of international chapters.
