Gems & Gemology in Review: Colored Diamonds will be released at the Gemological Institute of America’s 4th International Symposium in San Diego, August 27-29.  More than 100 entries spanning 70 years of articles, notes and photographs originally published in the GIA’s quarterly journal Gems & Gemology will be included.  The history, characteristics and color grading of all manner of colored diamonds will be discussed and the book includes new text and commentary from diamond industry leaders.  Several color reference charts were created for the booklet and accompany many more standard charts.

John King, technical director of the GIA Laboratory in New York, edited the publication.  King is a respected authority on fancy-color diamonds with more than 25 years of laboratory experience.  He has written a number of landmark articles for Gems & Gemology and frequently lectures on colored diamonds and laboratory grading procedures.  Alice Keller, editor-in-chief of Gems & Gemology comments that "With this book, John King has captured the allure of fancy-color diamonds, as well as the science involved in characterizing and grading them.  There is no other publication like it." 

Copies of the book will be available at Symposium in the G&G booth, located in the Elizabeth Foyer on the second level of the Manchester Grand Hyatt. Attendees will also have the opportunity to discuss Colored Diamonds with King during the "Meet the Authors" book-signing event Sunday and Monday from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. in the Elizabeth Foyer.  This is the second volume in the Gems & Gemology in Review series. Synthetic Diamonds, edited by GIA Director of Research Dr. James E. Shigley, was released in April 2005. Shigley will also be participating at the "Meet the Authors" event during Symposium.
