The graduation ceremony for the students of GIA (Gemological Institute of America) Graduate Diamonds (GD) Diploma programme took place at the Institute’s Mumbai campus, with an attendance of industry veterans and trade personalities. The event was held on December 13, 2013, where 20 students were honoured with diplomas at the hands of Heeren Shah, sales head of Laxmi Diamonds and special guest at the event.

“The graduation ceremony initiates our students into the professional world of diamonds,” said Nirupa Bhatt, managing director of GIA in India and the Middle East. “Students leave GIA with the self-confidence, poise and unparalleled knowledge needed to succeed in the industry.”

Mr. Shah shared his insights of 22 years with the industry. “The students are fortunate to have a GIA campus here in India, which trains them for the challenges in the gem and jewellery industry. It’s important that we, as a part of the industry, acquire quality and updated knowledge from an institute like GIA,” he added.

Manoj Singhania, GIA director of education, and Apoorva Deshingkar, GIA head of sales for India, were also in attendance to wish the graduates well.
