Convocation held for the batch of 2019

Recently J K Diamonds Institute of Gems and Jewelry organised the Convocation cum Knowledge series for the batch of 2019 in Mumbai. The program started with an introduction and a welcoming speech by Mr Jaynil Ajmera. Chief guests, Mr Manit Shah, MD, Global Emerging Markets & COO-Murowa Diamonds and Mrs Sarika Naheta, Director, Jaipur Jewels and an Alumni of JK, shared their experiences in the jewelry industry.

The event also boasted the esteemed presence of Mr Kirit Ajmera, the founder of J K Diamonds, one of the pioneers of the industry who steered gems and jewelry education in India through his rich experience and 100 percent practical and market oriented training programmes.

While Mr. Manit Shah talked about turnaround management and entrepreneurship, Mrs Sarika presented deep insights on brand management and brand positioning. The discussion was very relevant in today’s times as the competition is amongst the unbranded jewelers, hence it is time to step up and create your brand identity. The event was then taken forward by Mr Naman Ajmera, who held a discussion panel where our two speakers interacted with the audience and answered all the students’ queries.

The highlight of the event was the launch of Learnathon, an E-learning platform exclusively for the luxury industry. Learnathon was introduced with a launch video along with a course on Digital Luxury Branding. It was followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony by our chief guests.

JK Diamonds Institute also presented Start-Up Awards to students who have successfully started their own ventures, an initiative taken by the institute to appreciate students’ entrepreneurial efforts. The event was concluded by awarding diplomas to diamonds, gemology &jewelry graduates and a hats-off tradition.
