"It doesn't matter how much you think you know about gems, you never stop learning"

"You know the best thing that I've learned from your great course is that it doesn't matter how much you think you about gems, you never stop learning. Each day there is something more to learn, and it will never stop. Thank you for all the help, education and support that you give IGS members."

"I very much liked the Diamond Specialist Course, it is excellent, as comprehensive as it could be, and its structure offers all the theoretical and practical knowledge for grading and evaluating diamonds. Moreover, IGS related articles complement and consolidate what you learned during the course. It is true that the previous graduation of the Professional Gemologist Course has made it easy for me to understand and learn the lessons from this course, which has really become a specialization in the field of diamonds. I would recommend anyone to take the Professional Gemologist Course first and then the Diamond Specialist course."
Daniel Penescu "The Diamond Specialist Course is excellent, as comprehensive as it could be, and its structure offers all the theoretical and practical knowledge for grading and evaluating diamonds."
"I have been faceting gems as a hobby and just wanted to learn more about what I was really doing. I have gotten hooked now and really enjoyed your course. It is very well done . I'm going to see where this may lead me in the future now. Thank you all so much!"
James Mullin "I have been faceting gems as a hobby and just wanted to learn more about what I was really doing. I have gotten hooked now."

"What started as a hobby is now a small home business for my wife and I."

"I have never known or heard of an organization that offers so much for its members, and at such a low cost. What started as a hobby in 1998 and now is a small home business for my wife and I has been made so much easier by the information you supply. Thank you."
