The third episode of Rapaport’s GEMTalks series will feature a discussion on light performance in diamonds with special guests John Pollard of the International Gemological Institute (IGI) and Garry Holloway. 

John Pollard, senior director of education at IGI, and Garry Holloway, creator of the Ideal-scope, will speak with Rapaport’s Leah Meirovich about what light performance is, how it can add value beyond the 4Cs, and why a light performance certificate can be helpful for selling diamonds. Sponsored by IGI, the LinkedIn Live session will help shed light on an entirely different way to distinguish the best diamonds for generating brilliance, fire and scintillation. 

The two experts will also touch on how the Ideal-scope helps determine light performance, whether light performance can be used on fancy shapes, color or lab-grown diamonds, and how it’s connected to a diamond’s cut grade. 

This episode of the GEMTalks LinkedIn Live is sponsored by IGI — the International Gemological Institute — help your clients “see the light” with scientific assessment using IGI Light Performance Reports. 

“Seeing the Light: All You Need to Know About Light Performance in Diamonds” will take place on Wednesday, May 15, at 10 a.m. EDT. Register for the event by clicking here
