International Gemological Institute – IGI (Est. 1975), the world’s foremost name in diamond and fine jewellery grading services has recognised the efforts of the unsung, unnoticed women of the society who hardly get any attention on Women’s Day.
‘While the world is celebrating stories of women who have successfully carved a niche for themselves globally, Women’s Day at IGI, was all about recognising the efforts of the silent diamonds among us. The campaign #TheSilentDiamonds appreciated the victories of the women who we often see, but don’t really discuss, the ones for whom, women’s day is just another day to survive and sustain.’
According to IGI, the initiative was to appreciate the women who work against all odds to live a life of dignity, no matter what. ‘From taking up menial jobs to running little roadside enterprises, these women are indeed the epitome of determination and courage.’
Team IGI spotted many such inspiring women across the streets of the maximum city and took a moment off to appreciate them for the great work they have been doing. With a beautiful hamper on board, the team met many gratifying eyes that welled with pride. For their contributions to their homes, our lives, and the society at large, IGI thanks every #silentdiamond for giving their best for the world and salutes their spirit.
Every jewellery has a story. It is the essence of a moment. It captures your emotions. It is essentially an expression - of the maker, of the wearer, of the onlooker. Jewelpedia® narrates these untold stories from the glittering world of gems and jewellery.
