New digs for GIA’s New York Education Center

The Gemological Institute of America has updated, expanded, and relocated its New York Education Center to Madison Avenue as of May 3, and it now offers classes in gemology, jewelry design, and related subjects at the new location. GIA has been educating current and future gemologists in New York since 1948.

The new Education Center, which comprises 17,715 sq.ft. on the second floor of the building at 270 Madison Ave at 39th Street, will provide expanded space for classrooms and student areas as well as administrative offices. The previous center, co-located at 580 Fifth Avenue with the GIA Gem Laboratory, will remain as the laboratory’s headquarters location. The new location has seven classrooms, three more than at its previous location.
