The Gem Diamond Diploma follows the syllabus of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A) and is suitable for those who need to study diamonds in-depth, either to further their career or to fuel their passion.

The course includes diamond identification and grading, which are studied in the laboratory, together with a series of lectures. This leads to the formal Gemmological Association of Great Britain examination.

For both Gemmology Diploma courses there is an additional charge payable to the Gemmological Association for registration and examination fees.
