GIA (Gemological Institute of America) will offer its internationally recognised Graduate Gemologist (GG) diploma program in Mumbai from February 02, 2017.The programme gives students access to world-class education in gemmology.

The 26-week GG programme (Graduate Diamonds 7 weeks + Graduate Colored Stones 19 weeks) combines theory with practical hands-on learning. The course, taught by experienced instructors, teaches students the grading and identification skills to prepare for a career as a buyer, appraiser, retailer or other gem and jewellery professional.Students gain both technical expertise and practical skills to evaluate gemstones using the GIA-developed 4Cs (colour, clarity, cut, and carat weight) of diamond quality, the International Diamond Grading System™ and the Colored Stone Grading System.

Students learn to grade diamonds consistently and accurately in the D-to-Z colour range; use a microscope, a polariscope, a refractometer and other gemmological equipment; identify hundreds of common and unusual gemstones; detect synthetics, simulants and treated gems; understand value and the path gems take from mine to market; and speak the language of gemstones accurately, confidently and fluentlyto consumers.


GIA, the global leader in gem and jewellery education, also offers full-and part-time courses on diamonds, coloured stones, pearls, merchandising, jewellery design, retail and more. The Institute conducts regular corporate seminars on jewellery-related topics across 60 cities in India.
