GIA India conducted a five-day Diamond Grading Lab Class in Bengaluru. Many students and industry professionals opted for GIA India’s course to help them gain a better understanding of diamond grading.
Participants gained hands-on experience with world-class equipment and were trained to grade and identify diamonds using GIA’s 4Cs of Diamond Quality (Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight) and the International Diamond Grading System™. They also learned to detect laboratory-grown diamonds, treatments and simulants. In addition, the course taught participants how the 4Cs can affect value and the ways in which treatments can effect the appearance of a stone.
Siddarth Jain, a GIA India student and Sales Manager at Shree Diamond, said, “GIA offered an excellent educational experience with an interactive learning environment. The important aspects of diamond grading were taught in detail and that will help me in my career.”
Speaking about the importance of a GIA education and communicating effectively to consumers, Srilaxmi Kamath, Director of Abaran Jewellers, said, “The reason I enrolled for GIA India’s Diamond Grading Lab Class was to gain in-depth knowledge on diamonds. This course will help me immensely to impart accurate information to my customers, as they too should know about the 4Cs of diamond quality.”
“This five-day lab class had participation from traders, manufacturers, retailers and jewellery enthusiasts who wanted the tools to buy or sell confidently. ,” said Nirupa Bhatt, Managing Director of GIA India and Middle East.
