(ANTWERP, Belgium) - The International Gemological Institute (IGI) has formally announced its diamond evaluation card – the Diamond ID report. Unlike other reports where the diamond is kept in a vault and the report in a separate location, IGI’s new Diamond ID report stores the evaluation and diamond together in a secure credit card-size casing. The ID report contains security features and a Datamatrix, that once scanned, allows users to connect directly to IGI’s data system and confirm its authenticity. IGI introduced the report in April and has since successfully integrated the ID card as part of its services for diamond dealers and manufacturers. IGI says feedback to date has exceeded initial expectations.
