In the recent move, eBay has partnered the International Gemological Institute (IGI), through which it will offer the Indian fine jewellery and diamonds exporters with a new certification service.

For many years, the Jewelry and Diamonds category on eBay suffers from non-curated selling of diamonds. Unrealistic offerings by non-straight sellers, “inflating” the gemstones quality, make the selling of real quality stones and jewelry practically impossible. Seamless certification of jewelry / diamonds directly on the marketplace gives a hope to keep the algorithm abusers off, while creating more space for the real sellers with descent jewelry quality.

Hope this move helps reviving the Jewelry and Diamonds category on the marketplace!
