LDB chief operating officer Victoria McKay said: “Our partnership with IIDGR, part of the De Beers Group of Companies, continues to develop and our aim is to support the UK diamond trade by aligning our organisation with only credible and world class partners. This follows on from our partnership with AnchorCert last year, whom also have a state-of-the-art Birmingham facility.
“The diamond industry has many challenges presently. We will continue to use our worldwide and UK connections to create alliances with industry partners to underpin the UK diamond trade. Our message is clear:- we are focused on future confidence in diamonds and on maintaining the integrity of the supply chain.”
The launch of the service follows on from an exclusive LDB members-only seminar hosted at De Beers HQ yesterday during which London Diamond Bourse members heard first-hand speakers, were able to see demonstrations of melee screening equipment and speak directly to experts to address any questions.
