GIA (Gemological Institute of America) will participate in CARAT+ diamond show from May 6 to 8 at the Antwerp Expo in Belgium and at the Geneva International Gem & Jewellery Show from May 10 to 13 at the Palexpo in Geneva, Switzerland. Both shows will feature live demonstrations of the GIA iD100TM gem testing device. Show visitors will be able to talk with GIA staff about GIA’s research programs, educational offerings, and gemological laboratory services and instruments. There will be a GIA Show Service Laboratory available at the Geneva International Gem & Jewellery Show.

On May 7 at 4 p.m., GIA will host a GemFest during the CARAT+ diamond show. Tom Moses, GIA executive vice president and chief laboratory and research officer, will give an update on the GIA laboratory and research.

GIA’s Show Service Laboratory will be available for colored stones at the Geneva International Gem & Jewellery Show from May 10 through May 12 from 10:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and May 13 from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Show attendees can submit stones for GIA Colored Stone Identification Report, and GIA Colored Stone Identification and Origin Report services at the Show Service Laboratory. Stones are tested on a first-come, first-served basis; service time can vary depending on when items are submitted. When services are completed, clients will be notified by phone, email or text to pick up their stones and temporary reports. Final reports will be mailed within two to three weeks. For more information, visit GIA.edu/gem-lab-service/show-service or call +1 800 421 7250 ext 4517 or +1 760 603 4517. Diamond and pearl report services will not be available.

The GIA iD100 will be featured at both shows with live demonstrations. The new instrument can distinguish natural diamonds - mounted and loose, rough and cut - from synthetic (HPHT and CVD) diamonds and diamond stimulants in the colorless to near-colorless range, in sizes starting from 0.9 millimeters in diameter. For more information on the iD100 visit GIA.edu/id100.

There will also be tools and materials for retailers available at both shows, through the GIA Retailer Support Program, including GIA signage, training resources and educational counter displays. The program provides free videos, images, logos and interactive downloads that can be used in advertising, and on a retailer’s website and social media pages.  For more information and to see what supplies are available visit http://retailer.GIA.edu.
