Recognized as the foremost authority in gemology, the GIA provides courses and classes around the world. Their headquarters are in Carlsbad, CA with campuses from New York to Japan; London to Hong Kong.

The American Gem Society headquarters in Las Vegas, Nevada, is proud to host a series of their most popular lab classes twice a year – usually in the spring and in the fall. These instructor-led, hands-on workshops are your opportunity to work with a credentialed GIA instructor who can present and explain diamond grading, colored gemstone identification, and colored stone evaluation. No previous education or experience is necessary; no jewelry industry affiliation is required. All interested students are welcome.
