Observations on the Colored Stone Market

Today more than ever, changes in the gem and jewelry market happen at a lightning pace. Fluctuations in pricing and production output at various sources, along with evolving business models, can be overwhelming for consumers and members of the trade alike. Organizations like Gem World International exist to help us keep track of these market changes. In 2018, Mr. Robertson, Vice President and Director of Research at Gem World International, Inc., sat down with GIA to discuss trends he’s currently observing in the global colored stone market.

This is the first assignment in the 2019 Continuing Education Recognition Program. You will have continuous access to the entire course -- including the assignments, the GIA eLearning courses, and the multimedia archive -- until the end of the calendar year. Be sure to complete all eight assignments by December 31st, 2019 in order to receive your Continuing Education Recognition Program certificate.
