Danat launches smartphone app for pearl, gemstone examination results

Manama, Nov. 29 (BNA): The Bahrain Institute for Pearls and Gemstones (Danat) launched a new mobile application that enables customers to view the results of examinations of their pearls, diamonds, and gemstones on their smartphones.


The app was officially launched during Danat's participation in the thirtieth edition of the Bahrain-hosted Jewellery Arabia Exhibition.


Over the five days of the exhibition, visitors were able to immediately obtain the results of their purchases from the various gemstone and jewellery houses participating in the exhibition.


Clients received a certificate of authentication on their mobile phones, following the examination of their purchases at the Danat laboratory’s special stand at the expo.


During its participation at the Jewellery Arabia Exhibition, Danat presented a display of Bahraini natural pearls, oyster shucking, and other accompanying activities at its stand.


One particularly notable highlight was Danat's hosting of the historian and scion of the famous Cartier family, Francesca Cartier Brickell.


Francesca made a historic visit to Bahrain some 110 years after her great-grandfather, Jacques Cartier, first visited Bahrain in 1912.


Her book signing event for her family biography The Cartiers witnessed a huge turnout of visitors who came to purchase a signed copy of the book.


The Cartiers chronicles an important stage in the history of the pearl trade in Bahrain and the region.


Danat Institute CEO Noora Jamsheer said that Danat's participation in this year's exhibition had been a resounding success and had surpassed expectations and was especially pleasing as the participation was taking place for the first time at the new Exhibition World Bahrain in Sakhir.


The prominence of the Jewellery Arabia Exhibition made it a strong platform to introduce this service to as many people as possible including visitors, but also to those representing jewellery houses.


She emphasized that the application has been developed in conjunction with the latest digital technologies in the field of pearl, jewellery, and gemstone testing services, noting that this enhances the Danat laboratory's position as the best laboratory of its kind in the world.


Jamsheer reiterated Danat's desire to actively participate in the exhibition and present the Institute’s latest innovations.
