Indian Institute of Gems and Jewelry (IIGJ)

Indian Institute of Gems & Jewellery (IIGJ), Udupi set up by the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council in association with National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad, is a first of its kind institute in the Udupi region.

The Institute aims to provide training to the youth in the region in various aspects of hand-crafted jewellery making, which could eventually lead to employment opportunities in this dynamic G & J sector. It also aims at enhancing the skills of the existing workforce already engaged with the industry. Creation and upgradation of such trained workforce will in turn help in fostering development of the local jewellery industry.

With over 100 retail stores and engaging workforce of over 5000 people, Udupi boasts of a rich jewellery lineage. By setting up IIGJ, GJEPC envisions to productively use the talent available through proper training and guidance, and also provide exciting career opportunities to youth of Udupi and its surrounding regions.
