Exhibit Description

Considered an adventurous and provocative cut, the Trilliant first entered the market in 1978 as a triangular version of the square-shaped radiant. The notable collection featured in GIA’s atrium includes 100 trilliant-cut gems ranging in size from 7 to 140 carats. They represent gem species in a rainbow of colors and varieties including tanzanite, emerald and topaz that were mined from exotic locations all over the world.

Self-guided audio tours of this exhibit are available to Carlsbad visitors.
