GIA opens a grading laboratory in Tokyo Japan

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has opened a grading laboratory ‎in Tokyo, Japan, marking a ninth global location. ‎

‎“Bringing GIA’s diamond grading standards and research-backed lab services to such an ‎important market will serve the public interest by supporting the Japanese gem and ‎jewelry industry,” said GIA’s senior vice president for laboratory and research, Tom Moses. ‎‎“Our global network of laboratories enables GIA to remain at the forefront of gemological ‎developments and provide the best possible service to our laboratory clients.”‎

The Tokyo laboratory, which began accepting diamonds for grading from clients on Monday, ‎currently offers Diamond Dossier® and Diamond Grading Report services for D to Z ‎diamonds up to 2.99 carats with plans to expand the menu of services offered at the ‎facility in the coming months. The laboratory will also accept colored stones and pearls ‎for other GIA services, which will be sent to GIA’s global laboratories and returned to ‎Tokyo for pick up.‎

GIA announced plans to open a gem grading laboratory in Japan one year ago, following ‎extensive consultations with Japanese stakeholders. GIA has conducted educational ‎programs in Japan since the 1970s, with nearly 4,000 holders of the Graduate ‎Gemologist diploma in the country https://www.casinonorske.com/roulette-spill.‎

GIA’s manager at the Tokyo laboratory, Mari Okada, said, ‎“Providing grading services to the gem and jewelry sector where they operate is central ‎to GIA’s practice. We are ‎excited to open a laboratory in Tokyo to complement GIA’s long-standing educational ‎presence in Japan.”‎
