Gemology is the science of precious stones (diamond, ruby, sapphire and emeralds), gemstones (such as amethyst, citrine, topaz, pearl etc... formerly known as "semi-precious" but now prohibited), as well as organic materials (Amber, Pearl etc...) and alloys (Gold, Platinum, Silver...) The job of a gemologist consists in determining the nature and authenticity of gemstones in order to allow their identification. It must be able to differentiate between existing imitations and syntheses as well as the most common treatments. Thanks to the different measurement tools you will learn to use, you will be able to assess gems and work in many fields after training as a gemologist. It is an extremely rich and diversified profession, which opens up an exciting and different path to you than the "classical" paths, and allows you after two to three years at the International School of Gemology in Monaco, to be able to launch yourself into the job market with a real training recognized in secondary education.

By accessing the long gemology course offered at EIG Monaco, you will have access to :

A diploma course with the title of "Gemologist Expert" (recognized by the State at Level II of higher education),

A knowledge of the field directly from professionals during the many trips organized by EiG Monaco,

• An additional training certificate over one week of "Rough Diamonds" training: with a full week of theoretical and practical training with a diamond expert specialized in trading rough diamonds,
