Gemological travel around the world

Through our trips in each of the proposed countries, you will discover mines, dealers, heating techniques, stone cutters as well as trading techniques, customs law and much more...

Our gemology field trips focus on transmitting the knowledge of the gemstones trade from theory to practice.

Each country has its own interesting specificities to discover. India is more specialized in trade than Sri-Lanka, Brazil or Madagascar, which is more specialized in mining. Russia is a marvelous destination for its museums of gems and the visit of its numerous palaces...formerly reserved for the Tsars.
