“Knowledge is power and is gained by learning, and I only realised that after having come to GIA. This course has satisfied my extreme curiosity about diamonds. The faculty is excellent, knowledgeable and very patient. This course has helped me better my craft. My only regret is not having come to GIA earlier.”
