GIA (Gemological Institute of America) is hosting a 7-week programme of its Graduate Diamonds (GD) Diploma in Bengaluru. The programme will begin November 14 at Hotel 37 Cresent, and will be taught by experienced instructors from the Institute’s Mumbai campus.

This initiative will help bring GIA’s globally recognised gem education to Bengaluru, a significant consumer market for gems and jewellery in India.

The GD programme combines theory and hands-on practical learning on GIA-created 4Cs (Colour, Cut, Clarity and Carat weight) of diamond quality, diamond grading in the D-Z colour range. Also, students will learn how to use gemmological equipment to grade and identify diamonds; how to detect synthetics, treatments, simulants and fracture-filled diamonds; and how to be confident in narrating about diamonds to suppliers, vendors and customers. GIA conducts the GD programme in cities throughout India including Mumbai, New Delhi, Jaipur and Surat. The expansion to Bengaluru will be an opportunity for professionals and industry hopefuls from Bengaluru and neighbouring areas in southern India to gain easy access to world-class education. GIA has offered lab classes, knowledge seminars, and other short-term courses throughout southern India including Chennai, Cochin, Madurai, Hyderabad, Vijaywada and Vizag.

“Bengaluru is a major centre for jewellery in India, and home to renowned jewellery brands and designers,” says Nirupa Bhatt, managing director of GIA in India and the Middle East. “GIA’s Graduate Diamonds programme will bring a recognized course to Bengaluru that teaches the global language of diamonds.”
