Episode 28 – GIA – The Gemological Institute of America

September 18, 2018

What if we told you there is an organisation that has an annual $2,000,000 scholarship programme available to students just like YOU.  You would say “tell me more”, right?

Well, this week we have a fascinating conversation with Brenda Harwick, who is Senior Manager of On-Campus Instruction at the GIA.  That’s the Gemological Institute of America. An ethical and pioneering organisation responsible for the grading of diamonds and other gems. With a mix of online and offline education programmes, and with schools in Carlsbad, CA – London – Mumbai – New York – Bangkok – Taipei – Hong Kong – Dubai – Surat and Botswana, their fantastic scholarship programme is available to students with a passion for Jewellery around the world!
