GIA’s Ad­vanced Syn­thetic Di­a­mond Sem­i­nars Come To Mum­bai, Lon­don & Carls­bad

Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

Ge­mo­log­i­cal In­sti­tute of Amer­ica (GIA), the world’s fore­most au­thor­ity in gem­mol­ogy, will of­fer its new Ad­vanced Syn­thetic Di­a­mond sem­i­nars in Au­gust in Mum­bai and Lon­don, and in Oc­to­ber at its world head­quar­ters in Carls­bad, Cal­i­for­nia. The sem­i­nar dates co­in­cide with the gem and jew­ellery events or trade shows in each city. Par­tic­i­pants will have the op­por­tu­nity to gain in-depth knowl­edge of ad­vanced di­a­mond iden­ti­fi­ca­tion tech­niques and to have a hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence with the cur­rent pro­duc­tion of syn­thetic di­a­monds and the lat­est de­tec­tion tech­nol­ogy. While there are no pre-req­ui­sites, pre­vi­ous gem­mo­log­i­cal train­ing or ex­pe­ri­ence is rec­om­mended.

Taught by GIA re­search sci­en­tists and ex­pe­ri­enced class­room in­struc­tors, the sem­i­nars will com­bine lec­tures with prac­ti­cal lab in­struc­tion, in­clud­ing the lat­est GIA in­stru­men­ta­tion for dif­fer­en­ti­at­ing nat­u­ral di­a­monds from CVD and HPHT syn­thetic di­a­monds and di­a­mond sim­u­lants. In­stru­ments in­clude the GIA iD100™, GIA Di­a­mond Check™ and GIA UV Lamp with View­ing Cab­i­net. The GIA re­search sci­en­tist pre­sent­ing the sem­i­nar will have ex­pert knowl­edge of syn­thetic di­a­mond as a ma­te­rial, its iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and gem­mo­log­i­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics, along with the pro­cesses used by GIA’s lab­o­ra­to­ries to sep­a­rate syn­thetic from nat­u­ral di­a­monds. To pro­vide the most ef­fec­tive in­struc­tion, reg­is­tra­tions are lim­ited to 20 or fewer, de­pend­ing on the lo­ca­tion.

Held at GIA schools in each city, the sem­i­nars are sched­uled around other in­dus­try events, in­clud­ing the GIA In­ter­na­tional Ge­mo­log­i­cal Sym­po­sium in Carls­bad, Cal­i­for­nia; the Hong Kong Gem and Min­eral Show; the In­dia In­ter­na­tional Fash­ion Jew­ellery & Ac­ces­sories Show; and the In­ter­na­tional Jew­ellery Lon­don trade show. The cost and spe­cific cur­ricu­lum for each sem­i­nar will vary by lo­ca­tion. Dis­counted pric­ing is avail­able for GIA Alumni who have com­pleted a cer­tifi­cate course or di­ploma pro­gramme.
