Indian Institute of Gems and Jewellery (IIGJ), an initiative of GJEPC, was established under the aegis of Ministry of Commerce & Industries in 2003. The Institute has its main training facility at Andheri housed in its own fully air-conditioned standalone four storied building, with a total built- up area of over 12000 Sq. ft. The campus reflects a commitment to quality and dedication to the creative and intellectual needs of students. The educational needs of the students are also promoted in unprecedented experiences of academic energy, exploration and challenges. The Institute is in its 13th year of existence and over 3000 students have since passed out from various educational courses.

At IIGJ, a student's education doesn't end at the classroom door. The Institute provides an incredible variety of opportunities for students to enhance and supplement classroom learning with hands-on experiences in top jewellery companies, a list which will read like the who's who of the jewellery industry.

The Institutes educational programs are well supported by 18 full time qualified and experienced faculties and also professionals from the industry who are also invited as guest speakers. Three CAD labs with an overall capacity of 100 computer stations with all licensed 3D design software, two design studios, and a 45 station work bench training setup for jewellery manufacturing, Laser welder and Fisher XRF laser spectroscope are some of the other state of the art facilities available at the institute. The Institute also has its own 60 seater air conditioned auditorium with audio-visual support.

Besides its main training facility at Andheri, IIGJ also has training hub at Tardeo in the heart of Mumbai City.

Apart from regular jewellery educational classes for students, IIGJ has now collaborated with Welingkar Institute of Management Mumbai to conduct Jewellery Management programs.

IIGJ has recently restructured its courses to bring it in line with the requirement of the industry. The courses are now more intensive and comprehensive aiming to bring out the best in each individual.
