UPCOMING COURSES AND EVENTS
As a fourth generation jeweller, I have learned much from my father as he did from his father. However GIA’s powerful curriculum has given me insight and knowledge beyond traditional experience. The professional instruction and the first-hand use of lab instruments exceeded my expectations. I learned about diamonds from mine to market and developed a deeper appreciation for the diamond industry. What I learned will forever be reflected in my dealings with customers and suppliers alike.
I could not have asked for a better learning experience during my Graduate Diamonds Diploma program at GIA. There was a rigorous schedule and lots of study material, but our brilliant Instructor encouraged me to work toward my goal and helped me thoroughly understand the world of diamonds. I am an artist by calling and a marketing professional by training. I enrolled at GIA to gain the knowledge to help my family develop a jewelry brand. But my GIA education gave me so much more. I realized my true passion for diamonds and found my true calling!
GIA’s Accredited Jewellery Professional Diploma Program provided me great understanding and insights into the features and benefits of diamonds, jewellery and coloured stones. The instructor was excellent, knowledgeable and very patient, and helped me understand the technical concepts clearly.
It was an honour to earn my professional credentials at GIA. It has been ten years since I started working in the jewellery industry, but this programme gave me a very clear idea of all the aspects of the business. With my globally recognised GIA credential, I feel I have become an international jeweller, and now have the knowledge and self-confidence to ensure my business success.
GIA’s Accredited Jewelry Professional Diploma Program gave me the technical and ethical knowledge I needed to ensure my customers’ trust, enable me to offer better services, and enhance my reputation. This programme is a powerful tool I can use to assess my strengths in sales and in my future business.
The GIA Accredited Jewelry Professional Diploma Program is an eye-opener to the world of diamonds and gemstones. As a buyer, this program helped me with being more analytical towards the beauty of the stones. Moreover, it also was a guide to the business aspect of the industry.
Earning my GIA Accredited Jewelry Professional diploma has, – and will continue to have, a positive impact on my business. The programme deepened my understanding about jewellery design and this industry, and gave me practical insights into how to enrich my customers’ experiences. I recommend this programme for anyone in sales or starting up their own jewelry business.
GIA gave me a better understanding of diamonds, gemstones and jewellery and how to conduct a business in a proper manner. I also learned how to communicate knowledgeably with my customers. This helps me ensure their confidence and trust, and allows me to confidently complete the sales process, from start to finish.
