 The Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A) has partnered with Jewelry Television (JTV) to expand its educational services to the US market.

The UK-based organization has given accreditation to JTV to operate a teaching center in Knoxville, Tennessee, where the retailer is headquartered. The location will be the first under the Gem-A brand in North America, offering gemology-foundation, gemology-diploma and diamond-diploma courses. Gem-A currently teaches gemology in seven languages across 26 countries.

“We believe now is the perfect time for Gem-A to expand its reach with Gem-A USA,” said Gem-A CEO Alan Hart. “As our affiliate in the US market, both institutions share the same commitment to gemological education, quality courses and teaching excellence.”

In the coming months, Gem-A plans to collaborate with other affiliates to open additional teaching centers in the country.
