Campus Overview

GIA’s New York campus is a state-of-the-art facility in the International Gem Tower, right in the heart of the famed Diamond District. The campus is just a few feet away from thousands of businesses devoted to jewellery. New York is also the gateway to the world’s largest consumer diamond market, and the vast majority of diamonds entering the United States pass through it. Jewellery is New York’s third largest industry. And GIA is in the middle of it all.
