India Gems & Jewellery Awards

The GJEPC established the India Gem & Jewellery Awards (IGJA) 45 years ago to honour leading exporters of gems and jewellery. The selection criteria now include export performance, value addition, employment generation and investment in R&D among other parameters, during each financial year.

In recognition of the business excellence demonstrated by companies that are helping to strengthen 'Brand India', the GJEPC not only felicitates industry players for their exemplary performance, but also recognises entities such as banks and agencies supplying gold that play a key role in the growth of the sector.

Dun & Bradstreet, one of the world's leading providers of business information, knowledge and insights, is the Knowledge Partner for IGJA.
