World of diamonds

Welcome to the world of diamonds

As part of celebrating the 25th anniversary of its operations in Serbia, the Israeli Diamond Center (IDC) organized in Belgrade a unique exhibition of diamonds and diamond jewelry. From 16 to 23 December 2014, the visitors of the Maestro Jewelers salon had the opportunity to see over a hundred specimens of unique and valuable gems. The exhibition was accompanied by a seminar held by Miki Kamhi Marten,
Deputy CEO of the European Gemological Laboratory and an expert in analysis of diamonds. Her seminar called “Getting Started in Gemology” aimed to introduce the audience to the basics of the science of precious stones, the appraisal and certification of gems, the distinction between synthetic and natural diamonds, as well as various economic factors indicating that the purchase of diamonds is one of the safest investments in today’s world.
In order to share with you the expert knowledge, we bring you the highlights from this seminar that we will complement with new sections and interesting articles.

Yours truly,
