About

IIGJ Varanasi was set up by GJEPC, along with like-minded jewellery industry businessmen and IIGJ Mumbai, with the aim of reviving the traditional art of jewellery making in Varanasi and its adjoining areas. Varanasi has a long history of diamond cutting and finishing that dates back to ancient times, as the only city in the world to process diamonds from the mines of Panna and Golconda. In spite of its historical and traditional importance, the gem and jewellery industry in this part of the country now requires revival and proper training to create skilled jewellery professionals. 

With the establishment of this IIGJ Varanasi, it is GJEPC’s expectation that the exports of gems and jewellery from this region would improve significantly.

The Institute’s courses are based on a problem-solving design consciousness, linked to learning with actual experience and suggests that the designer could be a bridge between tradition and modernity. The Institute is also aimed at being a platform for future designers to re-examine the alternatives for growth and development that are available in this sector.
