GEM 101 learn the art of buying gemstones
20 November @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Everyone loves buying a bit of bling, but jewellery shopping can be complicated – particularly when there are gemstones involved. Does it matter where a stone is from? What about its cut? What should you look for in colour, clarity and more?
Gems 101 is a workshop catered to help equip you with easy-to-understand and useful tips so you can be more confident about the products you browse on your next shopping trip. The interactive, hands-on session will have precious gemstones available to examine, touch and compare, and will be hosted by Tay Kunming. Tay is director of the Far East Gems group, and a committee member of the Jewellers’ Association of Singapore and the Diamond Exchange of Singapore. He’ll share the knowledge he has acquired through both his gemmology studies and industry retail experience. Join us so you can take home some of this knowledge for yourself. There’ll be a “secret handout” presented, too!
