Synthetic diamonds course at Indian Diamond Institute

Indian Diamond Institute
Gandhinagar, (India): The Indian Diamond Institute (IDI) is going to start a new course in synthetic diamonds. This programme aims to teach students to learn a new technique called the Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD). This technique helps to create a diamond from the raw hydrocarbon gas mixture within laboratories.

Synthetic diamond (also known as laboratory-created diamond, laboratory-grown diamond, cultured diamond or cultivated diamond) is diamond produced in an artificial process, as opposed to natural diamonds, which are created by geological processes. Synthetic diamond is also widely known as HPHT diamond or CVD diamond after the two common production methods referring to the high-pressure high-temperature (HPHT) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD)crystal formation methods, respectively.

The decision of starting this new course was announced during the IDI’s 36th convocation and foundation day that held on 13 May, 2014. In the event, the IDI chairman Aagam Sanghavi spoke that this course will produce expert gemologists from their institute, who will be able to identify CVD treated Diamonds.

In the event, near about 179 students were awarded diploma certificates in the presence of the leading diamantiares from the industry, whereas some 8 students were honored with gold medals for their excellent performance in distinct courses as gemology, diamond grading, diamond manufacturing, jewellery manufacturing, diploma in jewellery designing and manufacturing among others.

Established in 1978, IDI the most coveted institute in the field of diamonds, gems & jewellery in India is a state-of-art school of learning, everything within the campus, under one roof.

Recognizing the Indian Diamond Industry as a major source of employment with scope for substantial value - addition for the country, the establishment of the Indian Diamond Institute was conceptualized and later put into effect at Surat, Gujart.

The IDI is a Society registered under Societies Registration Act, 1860 and also under the Bombay Public Trust Act, 1950. The IDI is ISO 9001:2008 certified for Design Development and provision of Training, Consultancy & Certification Services related to Diamonds, Coloured Stones & Jewellery.

Both are in metropolitan cities with good options for hostels, PG accommodations, food and entertainment. Cultural activities are equally good as is the faculty and study methodology. Even placements at the two IITS are amongst the best in the country. Yet figures indicate that the top JEE rank holders prefer Computer Science Engineering at IIT Mumbai rather than IIT Delhi. But, we are here to tell you when and why you can avoid IIT Mumbai.

Mumbai IIT was earlier placed in the suburbs, away from the crowds, giving IITians the space and peace to pursue their career goals. Today the area in Powai is surrounded by high rise building, malls and traffic snarls, bringing with it all the clatter and patter of a metropolitan hub.
