1-Day Gemmology Course Series

All tutors work are professional Gemmologists or Gemmology Trade Experts who are willing to share their expertise and trade secrets with you.

 

Gemstone or Glass?

- What are you Buying

A Course specially designed for those who are interested in buying gemstones but have little or no knowledge in the area. This course provides basic guidance on identification indicators for confirming a gemstone you purchase is real. A variety of stones are examined as part of the observational process. A very useful course for anyone whose business involves gemstones.

 

Whilst this course does not endeavour to make a Gemmologist of you in one day, it is surprising how much you can learn in a limited amount of time.

  • Observation techniques for colour, brightness, damage, light dispersion

  • How to use a 10x Lens and techniques for holding  a stone

  • Other useful simple Gemmological Instruments

  • A brief introduction to Synthetic stones

​​

​This course has been designed to be a useful for Jewellery Makers, Jewellery Retailers, Gemstone enthusiasts or Buyers.

No previous knowledge of Gemmology is required.
