GIA Holds Five-day Di­a­mond Course In Hy­der­abad For Con­nois­seurs

Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

Di­a­mond en­thu­si­asts, hob­by­ists and con­nois­seurs had an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity to learn more about the cher­ished stone—in­clud­ing the qual­i­ties that add to its value and jew­ellery-buy­ing tips—from one of the world’s lead­ing ex­perts in gem and jew­ellery ed­u­ca­tion. The Ge­mo­log­i­cal In­sti­tute of Amer­ica (GIA) con­ducted a five-day prac­ti­cal pro­gramme on di­a­monds in Hy­der­abad begin­ning from July 11.

Stu­dents in GIA’s Di­a­mond Grad­ing Lab class worked with real di­a­monds and pro­fes­sional gem­mo­log­i­cal in­stru­ments to un­cover the fas­ci­nat­ing world in­side these gems. The class taught both tech­ni­cal and prac­ti­cal ways to ob­serve and eval­u­ate di­a­mond qual­ity, and the ba­sics of the fa­mous GIA-cre­ated 4Cs (colour, clar­ity, cut and carat weight) to grade di­a­monds. Stu­dents also learnt how the 4Cs can af­fect value and the ways in which di­a­mond treat­ments can af­fect the ap­pear­ance of a stone.

Taught by ex­pe­ri­enced and qual­i­fied GIA in­struc­tors, the course is ideal for jew­ellery en­thu­si­asts, con­nois­seurs, stu­dents and work­ing pro­fes­sion­als in­ter­ested in di­a­monds.

GIA, the global leader in gem and jew­ellery ed­u­ca­tion, also of­fers cour­ses in di­a­monds, coloured stones and pearls. There are spe­cialised train­ing pro­grammes in mer­chan­dis­ing, jew­ellery de­sign, re­tail and more. The in­sti­tute con­ducts cour­ses in cities through­out In­dia, in­clud­ing Delhi, Chen­nai, Mum­bai, Ben­galuru, etc. Reg­u­lar cor­po­rate sem­i­nars on jew­ellery-re­lated top­ics are held across 60 cities in In­dia.
