(NEW YORK) – The International Gemological Institute (IGI) – creators of diamond laser inscription, Laserscribe – has announced that jewelry inscription service, PhotoScribe, will operate solely from the Institute’s New York laboratory.
PhotoScribe laser inscription service specializes in laser engraving and provides customers with high-definition, high-resolution engraving of jewelry articles.
The move to IGI will augment the Institute’s in-house inscription services, which include 3-D diamond and jewelry imaging in addition to IGI’s independent comprehensive analysis and evaluations of fine jewelry, diamonds and gemstones.
“IGI consistently evaluates opportunities to empower jewelry buyers with knowledge and confidence, and strives to deliver added benefits for consumers,” said IGI President Jerry Ehrenwald, G.G., A.S.A. “We believe the operational move of PhotoScribe to IGI’s New York lab will further enhance our state-of-the-art offerings.”
The re-location will also provide the infrastructure for PhotoScribe’s continued success.
“After many years of consistent growth, we found ourselves needing greater capacity to best serve our customers,” said David Benderly, CEO of PhotoScribe. “The inclusion of PhotoScribe on-site at IGI demonstrates the Institute’s commitment to adding value for consumers in the fine jewelry marketplace.”
PhotoScribe engravers will begin work at the IGI laboratory at 551 Fifth Avenue, ensuring a seamless transition. For more information on specific service offerings, please contact Scott Friedman, GG, ASA, MGA at 212-753-7100 (ext. 3309) or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.igionline.com.
