Shanghai – Level 2 in Mandarin
Within less than a year, six Level 1 classes were taught in Mandarin in Shanghai. Following this success, the Gübelin Academy now provides also the Level 2 course in Mandarin. From 14 to 18 November 2017 the Level 2 class takes place in the Bund area.

Coloured Gem Professional
The Coloured Gem Professional is created as a series of modular programmes with increasing levels from 1 to 3. The three level of courses culminate in a Gübelin Coloured Gem Professional certificate. Through knowledgeable, passionate and inspiring teaching, Gübelin Academy offers a unique fast-track training into the wonderful world of coloured gems, focusing on the practical and emotional aspects of emeralds, rubies and sapphires.

Level 2
The Level 2 class is part of the Coloured Gem Professional programme. Continuing in the modular fast-track format, the class deals with the details of the physical, chemical and optical properties of the “Big Three” in five days. With a combination of detailed course material and practical sessions, students understand emeralds, rubies and sapphires from a deeper perspective. They explore their origins and treatments; the mystery of light and certain optical effects; formation, mining, production and sales. Also students learn to look with a loupe like a professional, examining the interior of these gems together with trained gemmologist instructors. They also awarded a certificate of attendance upon completion of the Level 2. Successful completion of Level 1 is required to attend Level 2.
