GIA Mumbai Of­fers Jew­ellery De­sign Course

Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

The Ge­mo­log­i­cal In­sti­tute of Amer­ica (GIA) will of­fer its in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised Jew­elry De­sign (JD) Cer­tifi­cate in Mumbai be­gin­ning Fe­bru­ary 16. The course gives stu­dents the skills to trans­late their ideas into a piece of jew­ellery.

The ex­ten­sive nine-week JD course helps stu­dents un­der­stand jew­ellery de­sign con­cepts and ac­quire a work­ing knowl­edge of jew­ellery artistry. Taught by ex­pe­ri­enced in­struc­tors, stu­dents learn the art of con­cep­tu­al­is­ing and ren­der­ing jew­ellery de­signs by com­bin­ing tech­ni­cal and prac­ti­cal skills.

Stu­dents de­velop the skills to il­lus­trate the shape, form and tex­ture of metal; ren­der faceted gems, cabo­chons and pearls; and ap­ply tra­di­tional draft­ing tech­niques to de­sign jew­ellery. Stu­dents fin­ish the course with a port­fo­lio of de­signs that show­cases their work for po­ten­tial em­ploy­ers, and gain en­hanced skills to build their col­lec­tions and the con­fi­dence to en­ter the jew­ellery in­dus­try’s cre­ative do­main.

The JD Cer­tifi­cate is ideal for stu­dents pur­su­ing a ca­reer in jew­ellery de­sign, and for man­u­fac­tur­ers and other in­di­vid­u­als en­ter­ing the gem and jew­ellery in­dus­try.
