RAPAPORT... The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is planning to open an educational campus in Tokyo featuring courses in gemstones and diamonds to help strengthen Japan’s industry, the organization announced.

“The expansion of our activities with updated educational offerings will help support the dynamic Japanese gem and jewelry industry, and advance GIA’s mission to ensure the public trust in gems and jewelry,” said GIA president and CEO Susan Jacques.

The GIA will introduce the Diamond Essentials Intensive and Diamond Grading Lab classes in Japanese in November. It will add the Diamond Essentials and the Diamonds and Diamond Grading eLearning courses by early 2018, allowing students to complete the Graduate Diamonds diploma in Japanese.

Later, when the GIA offers the Graduate Colored Stones program, students studying in Japanese can earn their Graduate Gemologist diploma.

The GIA began running educational courses in Tokyo more than 40 years ago.
