Since its inception in 2013, the Gübelin Academy has been providing a unique set of gemmological courses to trade professionals, enthusiasts and connoisseurs.
Now on its 5th year, the academy is inviting students, former students and holders of Coloured Gem Professional certificates to an alumni event on September 16 on the sidelines of the September Hong Kong Fair to mark this milestone.
The first Coloured Gem Professional ceremony will also be held alongside the alumni event.
The academy was founded in Hong Kong with the aim of sharing the company’s unparalleled expertise in the coloured gemstone trade while imparting passion and emotion as a crucial part of the gemmological journey.
Created as a series of modular programmes with three levels, the Coloured Gem Professional course uses a combination of chemistry, history, science and stories to study the complex and fascinating world of emeralds, rubies and sapphires. Students are rewarded with a certificate upon completion of the course.
“Through knowledgeable, passionate and inspired teaching, the classes focus on the practical and emotional aspects of the gems,” the Gübelin Academy said.
