HRD Antwerp and Arihannt Diamond Institute Tie Up for Academic Collaboration in India


A Memorandum of Understating (MOU) was signed between HRD Antwerp India and Arihannt Diamond Institute (ADI) for academic collaboration in India on 18th November at the HRD Antwerp India office in Mumbai.

This MOU will facilitate the exchange of students, faculties as well as diamond, gemstone and jewellery related courses between the two institutes at Mumbai, Surat and pan India. HRD Antwerp is Europe’s leading authority when it comes to diamond grading, education and equipment. They draw on 570 years of experience passed down through the Antwerp’s diamond trade, and strive for perfection, delivering the highest quality in all their products and services.

The history of HRD Antwerp is intertwined with that of The Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC). The latter is a private foundation, established in 1973 as the Hoge Raad voor Diamant (HRD) or Diamond High Council, at the initiative of the Belgian government and diamond industry representatives.

In 2007, HRD Antwerp India was opened as a representative office offering educational services. Additional services in India which include diamond grading, jewellery grading and equipment sales were introduced in 2012.

HRD Antwerp India’s educational services offer the coveted ‘HRD Antwerp Certified Diamond Grader’ diploma courses in various industry disciplines, tailor-made programmes and individual coaching to meet up with the growing educational demand within the industry.

All HRD Antwerp courses offer hands-on practical sessions, individual access to the latest equipment, customisation as per specific client requirements and joint education certification.

Arihannt Diamond Institute was established to meet the growing demand of technology, expertise and knowledge in the field of diamond and jewellery since its commencement in 1998. They offer 18 different types of courses under a single banner from rough diamond to jewellery design courses.

Arihannt Diamond Institute is the only institute in India where candidates are successfully trained and prepared for the vast diamond industry that Surat harbours and provides a valuation course for Diamonds, which has always been a challenging task for anyone in the industry. Assessing the value of a diamond is one of the most important factors which assist in deciding the future profitability and growth of any organization or company. For 20 years the institute has successfully trained over 30,000 candidates.

Arihannt diamond institute provides business support to candidates who have successfully completed the diamond valuation course which includes buying and selling of diamonds, support and guidance for jewellery manufacturing. Job support is also offered by the ADI placement department to candidates who have successfully completed the diamond courses.
