Graduate Diamonds

The Graduate Diamonds diploma programme examines the technical expertise needed to grade, buy, and sell diamonds with the insight of a seasoned professional. This diploma program explores the GIA diamond grading procedures to assess the 4Cs – color, clarity, cut and carat weight and how they affect diamond value. Students use professional diamond grading equipment for the purposes of examining a diamond’s quality characteristics to grade and identify diamonds. Coursework also includes creating plotting diagrams; determining fluorescence; and detecting treated diamonds, synthetic diamonds and diamond simulants. Other topics covered include the effect of fluorescence on diamond body colour, the role cut plays in the marketplace, and important sectors of the diamond industry, including dealers, cutters and manufacturers.

“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.”
