Student Feedback

2-Day How to Value Jewellery | Private Tuition

The course was really well put together, the tutor (David) was very knowledgeable about diamonds & gemstones, as well as valuations and how to compile them. He was patient with us as we are both beginners and very friendly and easy to get along with.


I have taken away so much from just a two day course and was really pleased with the content.


I would rate this course 5 stars (Excellent).


Thank you for providing the CPD certificate.
