GIA Mumbai Offers Jewellery Design Course
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.
