Diamond enthusiasts, hobbyists and connoisseurs have the 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. GIA (Gemological Institute of America) will conduct its practical five-day programme on diamonds in Ludhiana beginning from June 20, 2016.
Students in GIA’s Diamond Grading Lab class work with real diamonds and professional gemmological instruments to uncover the fascinating world inside these gems. The class teaches 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) of diamond quality. Students also learn 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 specialized training programmes in merchandising, jewellery design, retail and more.
