    For jewelry and gemstone aficionados, the GIA is temporarily offering three of its online classes for free due to the COVID-19 crisis. (Move through the entire registration process and the enrollment fee will be waived at the end.)

    Just wondered if some jewelry lovers might be interested; this could be a worthwhile way to pass the time while in quarantine.
  2. Thank you! I have been wanting to take some of their classes! I started doing some metal smithing but they also have great classes on gemstones and pearls too! I will check it out.
    Have a great day!

  13. Hi Nyein -- Click "Continue to Payment" and it should work. Your screen shows account balance as "$0.00" so should be free
  14. This is so cool - Can't wait to start! Thanks for sharing :flowers:
  15. Has anyone started their class yet? I have some questions to ask. It is all online learning with NO tutorials? Can I register for this class if I don't live in the States?
