Dhwani Jain

GIA Graduate Gemologist

My family is in the jewelry business. I have tried my hand at various things, and finally, when I felt that jewelry was my calling, I decided to contribute to my family's business. My friends highly recommended the GIA Graduate Gemologist Program. Initially, I only knew about a handful of Navratna stones thatare popular. but, here in GIA, I learned about many other stones that widened my understanding and perspective.
