Diamond Buying for Jewelry Designers (3) Sessions

Want to learn the tricks of the trade when it comes to evaluating and buying diamonds? This class will enable you to attend a trade show or visit a diamond dealer’s office and purchase diamonds with knowledge about both diamond qualities and prices. The class will teach you the variations in a diamond’s whiteness, and its clarity (the better a diamond’s color and clarity, the more valuable it is). You’ll also learn to recognize a well-proportioned diamond – and how to save money choosing less well-cut stones that are still quite beautiful. Finally, you’ll also learn about diamond carat weight, and how that factors into a diamond’s price. All this will be taught, using real-life diamonds and some simple, portable tools of the trade. You’ll also learn how to differentiate between natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds, and imitation diamonds. Finally, you’ll learn how diamonds are priced, and where to find information on current diamond prices.
