(PRESS RELEASE) PALMA DE MALLORCA, SPAIN – The World Gem Foundation announced that it will provide its “Diamonds Course” free for all new clients of Gemometrics AB, innovators of the gemological screening tool GemPen.

The World Gem Foundation has included GemPen in its gemological curriculum since 2019 after conducting extensive tests in collaboration with IGE (Instituto Gemológico Español) laboratory in Madrid.

“There is a perfect synergy between the World Gem Foundation and Gemometrics. We believe in the same core values and our corporate philosophies mirror each other in all aspects” said Geoffrey Dominy, founder / CEO of World Gem Foundation.

The ‘Diamonds Course’ provides a comprehensive understanding of the chemical nature of diamonds, how they are formed, classified, mined and cut. It discusses their physical and optical properties, geology, localities, principle mines, causes of color, absorption spectra, pleochroism, inclusions, fluorescence, gem identification, methods of synthesis and common treatments/enhancements. The course also gives an overview of the various cut grading systems used by GIA, AGS, HRD, IGI, EGL & AGA. The course is available online and upon successful completion students receive course credits towards both the ‘Career Gemmologist’ and ‘Diamond Professional’ Diploma Programs and a letter of completion.

GemPen is a powerful portable gemological instrument for today’s jewelers and gemmologists, providing the ability to screen diamonds, rubies and sapphires for synthetics and treatments. GemPen was invented by Swedish gemmologist and geologist Torbjörn Lindwall (FGA), to provide a portable solution to aid in transparency and valuing gems in the industry. GemPen utilizes full spectrum Xenon ultraviolet (UV) light technology with a unique combination of wavelengths and filters which enables observation of results on treatments and lab-created diamonds – that are not visible using standard UV-light products.

“We are very proud to announce this collaboration between The World Gem Foundation and Gemometrics. We have been working together with The World Gem Foundation since the inclusion of GemPen in their curriculum in 2019 and we are thrilled to take this cooperation to the next level. We both share the belief that the gemstone industry must be more transparent and by providing Diamond courses to the users of GemPen, the industry will make more well-informed business deals.” says Daniel Smirat, CEO of Gemometrics.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
