Atlanta Show Offers GIA Colored Stone Grading Classes At Its August 2013 Edition

Responding to continued demand from its retail audience for lab training, the Atlanta Jewelry Show will once again offer two GIA Lab classes in conjunction with the August 3-5, 2013 Atlanta Jewelry Show.  

Providing a mix of lecture and hands-on training in an action-oriented environment, the GIA Colored Stone Grading Labs will run from Wednesday, July 31 to Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3 to Monday, August 5, 2013 at the Cobb Galleria Centre. "We first offered the GIA Lab Classes during the  August 2011 Atlanta Jewelry Show and the response was so favorable that we've been offering them ever since," explains Carol Young, executive director, SJTA, producers and managers of the Atlanta Jewelry Show. "Ordinarily, a jeweler would need to travel to a GIA campus to have access to a gemology lab class.  By collaborating with GIA, we are able to offer an intensive training session to our attendees. Whether they are working to earn their GIA credentials or to  sharpen their gemological skills, these Lab classes will help retailers gain confidence necessary for enhanced product knowledge, grading skills needed to buy inventory, and increase revenues and profits for their stores."  

Required for GIA GG and Graduate Colored Stones Diplomas, the GIA Colored Stone Grading Lab will run from 9 am - 5 pm daily -  Wednesday, July 31 to Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3 to Monday, August 5, 2013.

Through extensive hands-on practice using actual gemstones, attendees will develop skills in grading the color, clarity, and cut quality of a wide range of colored stones. They will learn the GIA Colored Stone Grading System and how to describe color in terms of hue, tone, and saturation. They will gain professional insight as they learn to judge gem quality factors and increase the consistency and accuracy of their colored stone grading skills.

Attendees will also learn about the relationship between light and color and develop your color memory.  

The registration price is $1458. Seating is limited so early registration is encouraged.
