 Jewelers, designers, scientists and tradespeople from around the globe gathered at the GIA World Headquarters and Robert Mouawad Campus in Carlsbad CA on Sunday, August 27 as GIA celebrated its 75th Anniversary.

Singer Chris Isaak entertained the crowd of over 1000.  Attendees were able to take in rare gems from the GIA's museum exhibition and the evening featured a fireworks display to the delight of assembled partygoers.


Carlsbad has served as the organization's headquarters since 1997.  GIA's Ralph Destino (then-president of Cartier) was serving on GIA's board at the time and helped find the location.  GIA has 13 worldwide facilities and the Carlsbad campus, spread over 30 acres, is home-base to approximately 70% of 1100 total employees.  It is also a regular destination for GIA's average of 240 students involved in gemology, jewelry, business and design courses.


Tours of the campus and museum facilities may be arranged in advance by contacting the GIA.
