Southport, CT, March, 2016.  SVS Fine Jewelry in Oceanside was recently awarded the prestigious title of Master IJO Jeweler Certified Gem Lab by the Independent Jewelers Organization (IJO).  “The requirements to be designated as a Certified Gem Lab through IJO are the most rigorous in the industry,” says store owner Sami Saatchi.  “Their guidelines for this program involve not only the study of gemology with the Gemological Institute of America, but also to own and have the ability to utilize specific gemological equipment in-house.” 

According to IJO President & CEO Jeff Roberts, “Since becoming members of IJO more than ten years ago, Sami & Nicki Saatchi have dedicated themselves to becoming the most knowledgeable jewelers in their vicinity.  They have gone to great lengths to achieve this esteemed title and it is with great honor that I present them with this new designation.”

The Saatchi’s are members for over 10 years of IJO, the world’s largest jewelry buying group, which is made up of 850 retail members and approximately 190 wholesale members.  The organization offers its members extensive education and networking, as well as very favorable buying opportunities.  “IJO strongly stresses the values of honesty, integrity, quality and trust, and being part of this organization helps to set me apart from other retailers in the area,” Saatchi added.
