Event description

Description

A one-day diamond workshop that will provide you with essential skills to kick-start your career in the diamond industry.

What will you learn?

You will look at the key differences between diamond and its simulants, and learn how to differentiate them as loose stones and in mounted jewellery. Using basic observation techniques and readily available instruments such as diamond and combination testers, participants will be taught to differentiate diamonds from the two most popular diamond simulants: synthetic moissanite and CZ, thus preventing costly purchase errors and allowing informed purchases to be made. Participants will also be able to test lesser seen stones that have been used predominantly in antique jewellery, such as colourless sapphire, zircon, synthetic spinel and paste.

Who is this workshop for?

Anyone with an interest in diamonds or someone considering making a diamond purchase.
