Attendees encouraged to bring their own jewels to the day, to examine.
Prominent gem expert Eric Emms will host a one-day high end and fine gem-set jewellery buying workshop later this year, with Steve Jordan.
The workshop has been devised by Jordan and Emms, and will teach how to judge the quality and values of diamonds and colour gem-set jewellery. The fabrication of jewels will also be demonstrated and discussed.
Attendees will handle representative jewels and are encouraged to bring their own pieces to the day to look at and examine in a new light. The first workshop will be held in the Hatton Garden area on 6th October and costs £235.
