The most prestigious gemology school in the United States is the Gemological Institute of America, better known as the “GIA”. With two major campus locations are in New York, New York and Carlsbad, CA, the organization offers a large number of courses ranging from jewelry repair, business, and the highly sought after Gemologist Degree.

To become a GIA Graduate Gemologist, “GG”, one is required to excel in several courses ranging in both diamonds and colored stones. The final examination is comprised of a highly thorough, written examination and a gem identification test which must be passed to become a GG.

In today’s world of jewelry retailers, buyers, and sellers the GIA Graduate Gemologist Degree stands as a benchmark of professional integrity and competency. This internationally recognized degree qualifies those whom have received it as fully knowledgeable of diamonds, diamond grading, and gem identification.

Zander’s Jewelry is one of the few retailers in the region who has earned this mark of professional excellence.
