Diamonds and gemstones, or as we call them: "natures' treasures", have always had an influence on culture, fashion, trading, business, status and much more. The interest in them doesn't always end by the purchase of a jewel, but may actually generate investigation and study of their internal world.
Gemology (or Gemmology), the knowledge of gems, is divided into 2 general areas: 'Diamond Grading' and 'Gem Identification'. The EGC College sets its courses according to this division. Both courses, 'Diamond Grading' and 'Gemology', are considered as the most comprehensive programs for gemology in Israel. The courses combine theoretical lessons, accompanied by presentations and printed materials, with practical exercises, using laboratory instruments and gem samples.
In order to facilitate the highest attention for each student, the lessons are held in small groups of up to 12 students which, during the practical exercises, are reinforced by 2-3 gemologists.
| Besides the theoretical lessons and the practical exercises, EGC College grants its students with tours in the diamond exchange area facilities and focuses lectures on how best to explore work opportunities in the industry.
The entire education program is supervised by Menahem Sevdermish, EGL Platinum president.
