GIA is the world leader in gem and jewellery education. The Institute has been a launching pad for many of the world’s renowned gemmologists, leading diamond dealers, gemstone dealers, jewellery business entrepreneurs, successful jewellery designers and retail sales professionals.
If you are a small or large business owner, have an eye for detail, creative flair, or are passionate about gems and jewellery, GIA is your destination.
GIA’s education location in Dubai suspended its operations on Dec. 31, 2019. This location has offered the on-campus Graduate Diamonds program, distance education lab classes and professional development classes since 2008. Students who wish to continue their GIA education or need to complete required lab classes within a credentialed distance education program may enroll through another GIA global location.
