4C's of Diamonds

A diamond is forever and is the symbol of eternal love. There are many good reasons behind that; the best diamond to purchase is not always the least included or the most colorless. It is what can be afforded and what appeals to the eye of the beholder; perhaps it is that included but dazzling diamond offered to you with solemn vows of love, or that valuable one you saw on display at your favorite guild store.

The four value factors of every diamond, known as the 4Cs, are discussed in this short webinar, as well as how diamonds are graded using a systematic and international method, how to read a diamond Jewellery report issued by the state-of-the-art DANAT laboratory, and diamond purchasing tips.

How to Buy Gemstones

Purchasing jewellery mounted with gemstones is one of the most frustrating shopping experiences. There are countless of gemstones in the market and thousands of retailers competing to sell them.
How can you be sure that you are purchasing the best jewellery mounted with the highest-quality gemstones? How can you interpret the beauty of a gemstone? How can the appeal of two or more gemstones of the same identity, color, clarity, size and shape differ? What disclosure you expect from your jeweller?
This short webinar discusses the hidden aspects of the gemstones. Attending it will ensure that you make better-informed purchases.

Natural Pearls of Bahrain

The Kingdom of Bahrain, one of the world's smallest countries, is the world leader in natural pearl preservation and production. For thousands of years, an archipelago of 33 natural islands has served as the perfect habitat of a special creature, the pinctada radiata mollusc, which produces one of the world’s rarest gems, the pearl of the Orient.
This webinar includes a glance of the history of natural pearls, which reflects the valuable pearl heritage of Bahrain and of the Arabian Sea. It explains how to read the unique DANAT natural pearl report and discusses the natural and cultural processes of pearls, revealing their identification secrets using DANAT's cutting-edge laboratory technology and its most valuable asset, its experienced staff gemmologists and pearl experts..
