Guest speaker, Nirav Modi shares traditional and innovative diamond cuts and jewellery manufacturing techniques with GIA's Alumni Mumbai Chapter

Feb. 25, 2013 - PRLog -- Mumbai, INDIA – Feb. 25, 2013 –GIA (Gemological Institute of America) and its Mumbai Alumni Chapter recently hosted jeweller Nirav Modi for a presentation on “Engineering with Jewellery Art” at the Institute’s Mumbai campus. Nearly 40 alumni members and students participated in the interactive seminar that delved into both traditional and innovative diamond cuts and jewellery manufacturing techniques.

Modi gave attendees a behind-the-scenes preview into his collections, highlighting two patented diamond cutting techniques: the Ainra cut and the Endless cut. Alumni and students were able to examine these cutting techniques up close with sample jewellery pieces from each collection.

“We would like to thank Mr. Modi for such an insightful and expert presentation. By showcasing his designs and techniques in a hands-on format, he has certainly helped inspire our alumni to envision innovations of their own designs,” said Manoj Singhania, education director of GIA in India and the Middle East.

Modi, a third-generation diamantaire and chairman and managing director of Firestar Diamond, began working in the diamond industry when he was 19 years old, eventually evolving into his role in curating and crafting fine jewellery. Modi’s pieces are regularly featured in major global auctions, including Sotheby’s and Christie’s.
