GIA Offers iPad Apps for Consumers and Jewelers
It’s a new year and the Gemological Institute of America—the education, laboratory and research organization that invented the 4Cs—has iPad apps that are designed to enhance the jewelry and gemstone buying and selling experience for consumers and retailers.
GIA’s newest app is just for retailers and designed to use at the point-of-sale (top image). It provides interactive 4Cs education that retailers can show consumers, guidance on using GIA grading scales, information on diamond treatments and access to GIA grading reports. Follow this link to learn how to download the app.
An iPad app for consumers was introduced in November and provides in depth 4Cs education, how to read a diamond grading report and information on various diamond treatments.
