Diamond and Pearls Day

Information
On:
Sat 1 Jun 2024
Price:
£120.00
Venue:
Soane Room
Tutor:
Sally Spencer
Running Time:
6 hours 30 minutes
Type:
Adult

A fun and interactive one-day workshop taking students through one of the classic gemstone combinations – diamonds and pearls.

The majority of the day will look at diamonds, including

their natural formation
the history of cutting & polishing
diamond grading
imitation stones
synthetic (laboratory grown) diamonds
identifying diamonds & their imitations

During the remainder of the day, we will look at the interesting world of pearls.

Students will also have the opportunity to see a selection of diamonds and pearls, demonstrating examples of some of the subjects we will discuss. The day is suitable for everyone with an interest in gemstones and will be a mixture of theory and practical work.

A copy of the Jewellers’ quick reference guide to working with gemstones is not necessary for the day but I will bring some with me in case anyone would like to buy one.

Please bring reading glasses if you use them. If you wear varifocal or bifocal glasses and have a pair of prescription reading glasses, you may find it easier to use those rather than your varifocals or bifocals when using the loupe.

A pen and paper may be useful in case you would like to take notes.
