Diamonds may have been overrated after decades of marketing, trends, product imaging, and powerful advertisement; but the reason why it remains to be a respected form of luxury, I believe, is because of the exquisite craftsmanship behind. What makes the stone a stunning masterpiece in our contemporary market is from the years of “experience, unique tools, trusted machinery, work ethic, and sheer artistry” given to it by the artisans behind each product.
To celebrate such a tradition of craftsmanship, Tiffany’s diamond is holding the Tiffany Diamond Academy first time here in Asia, showcasing guests the journey that each diamond goes through. Tiffany & Co.’s consistent dedication has earned them nearly 200 years of legacy, and not only are they here to exhibit the knowledge that they have learned throughout the years; they are also offering workshops about “Professional Polishing, Diamond Grading and Diamond Setting, while gemologists will be invited to further describe how Tiffany Diamonds are one-of-a-kind compared to other diamonds.”
For those who are interested in the workshops, send an email to the address below. Each guest who completes the course will be given a certificate certified by Tiffany & Co.’s Chief Gemologist, Mr. Melvyn Kirtley.
