GIA's Tom Moses To Speak At CARAT+Show In Antwerp

GIA Executive Vice President and Chief Laboratory and Research Officer Tom Moses will speak at a GIA GemFest during the May 6 to 8 CARAT+ show in Antwerp, the organizers said.

Moses will speak at the GIA GemFest on a current gemological topic.

More GIA will participate at CARAT+ with information about its research programs, educational offerings, and gemological laboratory services and instruments.

In addition, during the CARAT+ fair, there will be live demonstrations at the GIA booth of the GIA iD100TM gem testing device. The new instrument can distinguish natural diamonds - mounted and loose, rough and cut - from synthetic (HPHT and CVD) diamonds and diamond stimulants in the colorless to near-colorless range, in sizes starting from 0.9 millimeters in diameter.

There will also be information available on tools and materials for retailers, offered through the GIA Retailer Support Program, including GIA signage, training resources and educational counter displays. The Retailer Support Program also offers material that can be used in advertising, and on a retailer’s website and social media pages.


“This opportunity to present information about GIA’s instruments, education programs and gem identification and grading services serves our mission of ensuring the public trust in gems and jewellery,” said Moses.
