Gemworld at the Scandinavian Gem Symposium!

2017 SymposiumPosted by Jan Asplund Dec 11, 2016 02:31:45
It is with great pleasure we announce that Gemworld will be part of the Scandinavian Gem Symposium 2017. Gemworld is an important global actor in the area of diamonds and colored gemstones grading and quality determination. Gemworld willl give a workshop on colourgrading gemstones and there will be opportunities to learn about the Gemguide, a very important pricelist publication used all over the world, as well as the colored gemstone grading system they have developed; World of Color.

There is no need to point out the importance of Gemworlds presence in Scandinavia as everyone involved in diamond and gemstone valuation ought to understand that this is an opportunity to get deeper understanding on colorgrading not to be missed.
