The graduation ceremony was preceded by an interactive session in which Devansh spoke on the topic “Opportunities in the Natural Diamond Industry.” Sharing his insights with the graduating students, he said, “We deal with natural diamonds – a product that’s high-value – and customers rely on us to provide them with accurate knowledge. Education from institutes like GIA is important to build trust and confidence among consumers about this industry.”

Addressing the students, Apoorva Deshingkar, Senior Director – Education and Market Development, GIA India, said, “I would like to thank Devansh on behalf of GIA India. I would also like to congratulate our GIA Diamond Graduates for this remarkable achievement. The gem and jewelry sector is a highly skill-based field, and our programs provide time-tested skills and the knowledge to ensure our students are industry-ready.”

Aadit Parekh, GIA Diamonds Graduate, said, “I learned about GIA through friends in the industry. As I’m starting my business in diamonds, the knowledge I gained from the program will prove extremely beneficial.

”Pratham Verma, GIA Diamonds Graduate, said, “In addition to teaching me all about diamonds, GIA has also instilled in me the importance of punctuality. I will carry these learnings with me throughout my life.”

Muskan Narula, GIA Diamonds Graduate, said, “I’m not from the gem and jewelry industry, but it has always fascinated me. While researching for educational programs, my friends highly recommended GIA. I have now completed two programs with GIA: my first one was the Comprehensive CAD/CAM for Jewelry Program, and now I have completed my GIA Graduate Diamonds Program. Both these courses were amazing and acquiring these credentials has greatly boosted my confidence.”
