Sponsor a Student


Benjamin Franklin once said ‘An investment in knowledge pays the best interest’ and this is as true today as it was back then. Knowledge is a key that can unlock many doors but for most people, education is a luxury they simply cannot afford. This is especially true in the key gem producing areas. How can you sell your products when you know little about them? When the buyer is more knowledgeable than the seller, you will never create a level playing field. The seller will always be disadvantaged.

We would love to provide free education to people in these gem producing areas so that they can improve their lives both economically and professionally. If we can, it will allow us to reach people who, up until now, may have only dreamed of studying gemmology. A dream that previously was unimaginable, unthinkable. We can do it but it requires your help.

Our 'Sponsor a Student' program allows individuals, like yourself, to play an important role in educating the next generation of gemmologists. For more information, please click here
