Graduates of GIA's first GG programme in Shanghai
Having completed its first Graduate Gemologist (GG) programme in Shanghai, the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) recently awarded the 10 graduating students, at a ceremony witnessed by university officials, business leaders, local media members, and GIA Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Kathryn Kimmel. Students received diplomas at the hands of Kimmel.

Seung-Hae Moon, managing director of GIA Asia Pacific Education, said “The Institute is honored to serve the Shanghai community through gemological education and we look forward to continually guiding students to a rewarding career path in gems and jewelry.” Majority of the graduates were from Shanghai with others being from Northern China, Japan and Singapore, according to Moon.

The programme was conducted at the School of Media Design at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, which was also the venue for the graduation ceremony. The GG program in Shanghai was introduced in August 2011. Its curriculum included a learning of the 4Cs (Color, Cut, Clarity and Carat weight) related to the value of diamonds; grading diamonds in the D-Z color range; use of equipment to grade and identify gemstones and colored stones; and detecting synthetics, treatments, simulants and fracture-filled diamonds and colored stones. GIA has planned hosting its second GG program and a Jewelry Design class in Shanghai on February 27, 2012.
