IDC PARTICIPATES IN AN INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE DIAMOND AND JEWELRY INDUSTRY IN ISRAEL
Thursday, June 20th, 2019 was an exciting day at IDC- the Israel Diamond Center. The company welcomed two guests of honor, famous Japanese singer and actress Saori Yuki and renowned gemologist Ahimadei Ai. In addition to her flourishing artistic career, Saori Yuki is a jewelry presenter and has her own line of top end jewelry, and Ahimadei Ai, is considered as one of the top gemologists in the world. The two teamed up to film an international documentary on the Diamond and Jewelry Industry in the middle east, whereby one of their shooting locations was Israel and Turkey.
Israel was chosen because it is a major player in the international diamond industry and in 2016 cut diamonds from Israel accounted for 12% of the world’s production! Saori Yuki and Ahimadei Ai decided to incorporate IDC in their documentary because it represents the highest level of diamond craftsmanship and trade. For over 50 years IDC’s master artisans have created cutting edge designs that have dictated jewelry trends and have moved the industry forward. The company has established itself as an expert in all facets of the industry- from diamond polishing and design to trading. Its luxurious showroom showcases over 6 different diamond brands.
The guests and their filming crew arrived at the IDC showroom in Ramat Gan and received a VIP tour of the showroom. Avi Tavisal, the owner of IDC and a veteran jeweler, shared with them the history of the company and also provided them with insights into the Israeli diamond industry.
The guests were especially impressed by IDC’s ‘jewel in the crown’- the Moriah Collection. The collection is unique because it incorporates Moriah Jerusalem Stones together with precious stone metals. Moriah Jerusalem stones are stones that have been unearthed from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem as part of the Temple Mount Sifting Project. The Sifting project has unearthed thousands of artifacts, most of which date back to the time of the First Jewish Temple (1000–586 BCE). By creating unique jewelry out of the Moriah Jerusalem Stone, jewelry owners can benefit not only from its aesthetic value but from the value associated with the knowledge that this stone was taken from the holy temple mount in Jerusalem.
In gratitude of their visit, IDC awarded Saori Yuki and Ahimadei Ai a unique Moriah Collection pendant.
IDC would like to thank its honored guests for coming to its showroom and look forward to seeing their documentary.
