Following its recent re-launch, the Natural Color Diamond Association (NCDIA) is moving forward with a series of educational events and resources.

 The organization will hold a consumer-focused educational event at the Kristin Hanson Gallery in New York in October. The event will give NCDIA members the opportunity to display their products and interact with a select group of high net worth consumers in a fun and social environment.

 The event will also feature discussions and panels featuring everything that the consumer needs to know when buying a natural color diamond.
 In addition, the second issue of the quarterly NCDIA newsletter Natural Colors will run in September. The edition will be dedicated to the subject of pink diamonds and will include educational information and selling tips from Thomas Gelb, the organization’s educational director. 
The NCDIA is also in the process of developing a new website featuring interactive components for both members and consumers including the latest information on natural color diamonds, podcasts, a design gallery, retail locater and a membership login with a natural color diamond request dashboard. The website is set to go live in early September.
