Dr. Nawal Kishore Agrawal, Director of Board. said: “It is the first and only gemmological laboratory in North India to commence pearl identification services through state-of-the-art equipment. Jaipur being one of the most important trading hubs for pearls, after Hyderabad and Mumbai, will now have access to pearl identification reports locally, at cheaper costs and low turnaround time. However, the laboratory will keep serving markets outside Jaipur through its logistics support.”

Nirmal Kumar Bardiya, Regional Chairman, Rajasthan Region, GJEPC, said:For the last 52 years, GJEPC laboratory (earlier known as GTL) is serving the industry with unbiased assessment of coloured gemstones and diamonds, which will now be extended to pearls with the launch of the pearl identification service. This service will facilitate buyers to make quick buying decisions, thereby boosting pearl trade in and around Jaipur.”
