GIA CLASS TO TEACH DIAMOND GRADING The Gemological Institute of America will teach four one-week courses in diamond grading this summer and fall at The Diamond Institute in Florida, N.Y. "We're offering a complete, intensive program," says Sofus Michelson, founder of The Diamond Institute, which offers an 80-hour program in diamond cutting and polishing. "Students will take the one-week GIA class using hand loupes only -- no microscopes -- and learn to grade diamonds to the degree required of all cutters before they begin cutting stones." The course will be offered Aug. 26-30, Oct. 7-11 and Oct. 14-18. The school is located about 50 miles north of New York City. The Diamond Institute Inc., P.O. Box 223, 59 N.
