Utkarsh Goyal
GIA Diamonds Graduate New Delhi

My family business in the cashew trading, but I am looking to build a career in the jewellery industry. I wanted to learn about diamonds because it's a very scarce product and the foundation for most fine jewellery sold around the world. I did my research and found GIA to have the best reputation for teaching. I am really glad I decided to enrol. In a short span of 7 weeks, GIA has helped me develop my knowledge in diamonds with detailed understanding of technical concepts. This programme really helped me to enhance my confidence and create a concrete base for my career.

Sourabh Gupta
GIA Graduate Gemologist New Delhi

My family business is in the steel industry, so I did not grow up around diamonds and gemstones, which is where my passion lies. I wanted to learn from the best institute in the world, and knowing that GIA has been conducting gemological research for more than 80 years, I knew that was where I wanted to study. Today I can proudly say that I am a gemologist, which was made possible from the knowledge GIA has implanted in me. GIA provided the perfect environment to study - a modern facility that was fully equipped with gemological instruments and most important, very knowledgeable instructors. The factory visits in Surat and Thailand were an eye-opener as we could see and apply the learnings practically at the markets and met professional and experienced people from there.

Tulsi Bhansali
Jewelry Design Certificate Goldiam Jewellery Limited Mumbai

I come from a jewelry business background and I am currently looking into business development. I did not have prior experience in jewelry design, so GIA's course was a natural step to enhance my learning curve. GIA taught me how to visualize and render all types of jewelry, from rings to pendants, and even larger sets. Learning how to render taught me how to make the entire piece come alive. It's a very useful skill because it aids me to convey the correct message to 'karigars', who are the ones that eventually convert my designs into a piece of fine jewelry. My instructor was helpful and she ensured that I had a great experience. This course has given me the knowledge that I require to design my own jewelry line, and it will help me to bring freshness to the designs of my company

Sradha Khandelwal
GIA Colored Stones Graduate Orissa

My family background is not in gems and jewellery, so I always thought that every green stone is an emerald, that every red stone is a ruby and that all blue stones are sapphires. After coming to GIA, I learnt that there are so many stones to know and learn about. GIA has been a superb experience, and what I have learnt from GIA is so much more than what I imagined. I will confidently use my knowledge as I join the ranks in the gem and jewellery industry.

GIA Graduate Gemologist South Africa

I am a jewellery designer and a manufacturer from Cape Town, South Africa. If a person is serious about working in the jewellery industry, GIA's Graduate Gemologist diploma programme is truly an amazing start. As a designer, it is very important to know the materials one is working with, especially the gemstones, to create a pendant, ring, or any jewellery. At GIA, I had the opportunity to learn and practice on an immense variety of gemstones and distinguish between a natural and synthetic stone., Today, I am more knowledgeable and confident about diamonds, colored stones, and pearls. Thank you GIA for the quality education you have given me.
