The World Gem Foundation is a non-profit organization that was formed in 2015 with the mandate to provide quality and affordable gemmological training to students, jewellers and professional gemmologists.
Currently consisting of eleven national and regional gem academies in the United Kingdom, Holland, Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland), Spain, Kenya, the U.S, Canada, India, Central America (Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Panama), South America (Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, Guyana and Suriname) and the Caribbean (Cuba, Puerto Rico, Haiti and the Dominican Republic), we plan to establish three more academies around the world before the end of 2017.
Through our network of registered academies, students can now study gemmology through the World Gem Foundation and have their accomplishments and achievements acknowledged and recognized worldwide.
Whether you have a general interest in gemstones and gemmology, are an accomplished gemmologist wishing to upgrade your skills or a novice wishing to become a professional gemmologist, the World Gem Foundation has a full range of courses and programs custom tailored for you.
With our flexible study schedule and courses ranging from basic through advanced gemmology to gem identification, diamonds, coloured gemstones or our complete 'Career Gemmology' program, the World Gem Foundation will help you meet the needs and demands of our ever-changing industry.
I hope you will become a part of the World Gem Foundation either as a student or as a licensee and explore the fascinating world of gemstones and gemmology.
