Certificate Course in Gemology – 4 Months

Certificate Course in Gemology CCG Vogue Institute of Art and Design

You learn how to categorise and analyse a wide range of gem materials, both naturally occurring and man-made, in the Gemmology curriculum. The program’s main goal is to identify distinct jewels by examining the chemical and physical properties of gems and gem-like materials.


We teach students the fundamentals of gemstone identification as well as the ideas of grading and evaluating cut gems, modern treatments, and computer-assisted jewellery production as the leading gemmology school. According to their desirable qualities, the gem materials are divided into categories, and this classification ultimately determines the value of the stones.
On actual gem materials, you utilise a variety of specially made tools, including microscopes, spectroscopes, refractometers, and polariscopes, to carry out the identification and classification.
Students receive in-depth, practical instruction that broadens their knowledge and expertise and aids in their career advancement.
