GIA to Open Lab in Israel

The Gemological Institute of America will open a laboratory in the Israeli diamond center in Ramat Gan.
The new lab, opening in early September, will provide a variety of on-site services including GIA diamond grading reports and diamond dossiers.
“The opening of the GIA facility is of major significance to the Israeli diamond industry and advances our position as a global diamond trading hub,” Moti Ganz, chairman of the Israel Diamond Institute, said in a statement.
