About GIA in India
GIA has been serving the Indian gem & jewellery industry since 2004 when it first opened its Mumbai campus, and four years later, a state-of-the art grading laboratory in the same location.
GIA is located in Bandra-Kurla Complex, close to the Bharat Diamond Bourse. Staffed by a seasoned team of instructors, gemmologists and graders, the Mumbai laboratory and educational facilities cater to the needs of manufacturers, traders and retailers across the country.
In 2018, GIA opened a new laboratory in Surat to meet the needs of the global gem and jewellery industry. The new laboratory in Surat offers diamond manufacturers based in this important diamond centre direct local access to GIA’s laboratory services. GIA educational programmes are also offered at the same location.
The world leader in gem and jewellery education, GIA attracts students from all over the country and the globe. Offering programmes and courses in diamonds, coloured stones, pearls and jewellery design, GIA provides knowledge and practical skills to translate the love for gems and jewellery into a rewarding career.
