VTB Bank (Armenia) offers Rosan Diamond Art Collection exclusive  jewelry cards on Visa Infinite platform

ArmInfo. VTB Bank (Armenia)  makes an exclusive offer to its prime customers - Rosan Diamond  jewelry cards. The Bank's press office has told ArmInfo that the  cards operate on the Visa Infinite platform and include the package  of services offered by Visa and VTB Bank (Armenia).   

The source says that an Art Collection card features a chip, but does  not have a magnetic stripe, personal information embossed and CCV  code, which makes it more secure. A standard plastic card companion  is issued in addition to the jewellery card in order to use it at the  ATMs, POS terminals, which do not support "chip and pin" technology,  and for the internet payments.

The Rosan Diamond Art Collection cards are handmade cards designed by  high-skilled jewelers, who create them with gold and other precious  materials with embedding of the precious gemstones. The cards are  unique and can be both acquired from the Rosan Diamond collection and  created by each customer's individual order. Art Collection cards do  not expire and can be used for more than one generation. This unique  feature arises from the possibility to replace the card chip upon its  expiration.  

One can receive more detailed information by dialing (+37410)  58-59-85.
