Diamonds for Designers
Do you panic if you get asked about diamonds? Would you like to feel confident chatting to customers, helping them choose the perfect diamond, knowing what you should pay, where to buy, what quality it is, and how much to charge your customer? We have the solution...
This full day face to face course gives you essential knowledge and skills to get confident working with diamonds. In this course we teach you how to identify diamonds with a loupe and how to assess quality and value. You will learn how and where to buy diamonds and what to consider when designing and manufacturing with diamonds.
You won't be confused by crystals after this. We will make it crystal clear. (pun absolutely intended!) You will even get your own crystals to keep to start your own collection.
If you want something that gives you a basic understanding of crystallography and crystal identification then this is the course for you. In this hands on class we will help you master the theory and recognise common crystals.
