Often we find that many consumers wish they knew more about jewellery, diamonds and gemstones before making important purchases. As gemmologists we are trained to know what to look for but what about the average person?
We are strong supporters of The Canadian Gemmological Association and it’s courses. It is a private career college dedicated to the field of gemmology but also to educating individuals who simply wish to learn more.
Their General Interest courses are aimed at the average person who simply wishes to make informed decisions before making a purchase of fine jewellery. If you have an interest in expanding your knowledge or simply wish to learn how to “buy better” then these courses may be of interest. Below is their open house invitation for 2013.
