GIA Brings Grad­u­ate Di­a­monds Di­ploma Pro­gramme To Mum­bai

Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

GIA will of­fer its in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised Grad­u­ate Di­a­monds (GD) Di­ploma pro­gramme in Mum­bai. The seven-week pro­gramme com­mences on Au­gust 18 and will be taught by ex­pe­ri­enced in­struc­tors.

The GD pro­gramme com­bines the­ory and hands-on prac­ti­cal learn­ing to teach stu­dents the GIA-cre­ated 4Cs (colour, cut, clar­ity and carat weight) of di­a­mond qual­ity and how to grade di­a­monds in the D-Z colour range. Stu­dents will learn how to use gem­mo­log­i­cal in­stru­ments to grade and iden­tify di­a­monds; how to de­tect syn­thet­ics, treat­ments, sim­u­lants and frac­ture-filled di­a­monds; and how to con­fi­dently speak the lan­guage of di­a­monds to sup­pli­ers, ven­dors and cus­tomers.

In ad­di­tion to class­room lessons, GIA fa­cil­i­tates hand­son learn­ing through reg­u­lar mar­ket vis­its – such as man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties and re­tail houses – to gain an un­der­stand­ing of day-to-day busi­ness. Stu­dents have a unique op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence the jour­ney of a di­a­mond from mine to mar­ket.

The in­sti­tute con­ducts its GD pro­gramme in cities through­out In­dia, in­clud­ing Chen­nai, Cochin, Hy­der­abad, Su­rat, etc. GIA, the global leader in gem and jew­ellery ed­u­ca­tion, also of­fers full- and part-time cour­ses on di­a­monds, coloured stones, pearls, mer­chan­dis­ing, jew­ellery de­sign, re­tail and more. The in­sti­tute con­ducts reg­u­lar cor­po­rate sem­i­nars on jew­ellery-re­lated top­ics as well.
