Starting in April, Gems & Gemology will be a FREE application available on your IPad.

If you have stones needing grading, the Domestic labs are now operating at about a 5 day turnaround, way better than it was.

Did you know that GIA gives classes on diamond rough evaluation to artisanal miners in Africa as part of their outreach program.

Yes indeed. I ponied up again when they lowered the price.

The bizarre thing is they FEDEX?!?!? the thing to my US address. Seriously - Fedex? I feel like the bulk of my subscription cost is going to the carrier.

FedEx?? Seriously?? :roll: GIA should offer a lower rate for "regular speed" mail. First Class is just fine, for me... LOL.

I'm a longtime G&G subscriber but my issues arrive via mail. The fed ex thing is very odd!
