I am from Australia and am visiting USA from mid August to mid Sept
2015. Can anyone tell me about gem setting courses in or near LA or
San Diego, California at that time? Winnie
GIA has some but might not fit your schedule.
Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is in Carlsbad California.
Here is a link. http://www.ganoksin.com/gnkurl/ep81uq
Not sure of the schedule. Maybe they can direct you.
