Join Sally for 2 hour live zoom classes which provide an overview of some of the gemmological information in the book, explaining why this information can be so useful for jewellers.
You can choose one or both classes! One class costs £49 or both classes together cost £88.
Please note, if you only want the Gemstones for jewellers class you will need to choose the No Thank You option from the second class choices.
2 hour live zoom class - Gemstones for jewellers (see drop down choices for dates)
This class gives a brief overview of gemmology as a subject then covers gemstone durability, how to use a loupe and tweezers to look at gemstones, a gemstone's potential vulnerabilities, how gemmologists identify gemstones and why correct gemstone ID is important.
For this class you will need a copy of Sally's book, a 10x loupe, a pair of tweezers (not reverse action!), 1 or 2 (or more...) gemstones, pen and paper and a cup of tea or coffee! If you don't already have a copy of the book, please make sure you allow enough time for it to be delivered to you (estimated delivery times are listed against shipping options for each country at the checkout).
2 hour live zoom class - Gemstone treatments, synthetics and imitations (see drop down choices for dates)
An introduction for jewellers covering what a synthetic gemstone is, what imitation gemstones are, gemstone treatments, composite gemstones and a buyer beware section!
In this class you can discover more about gemstones so that you can make more informed decisions and purchases - you'll need a copy of Sally's book, pen and paper and a cup of tea or coffee! If you don't already have a copy of the book, please make sure you allow enough time for it to be delivered to you (estimated delivery times are listed against shipping options for each country at the checkout).
A zoom link for the class will be emailed 3 days before the date of the class.
Who are these suitable for - while they were developed around the book, they may be of interest to anyone who loves gemstones or wearing their gemstone jewellery, not just jewellers!
