Diamond’s are a Jeweler’s Best Friend (Tour)

For jewelry entrepreneurs new to the secretive diamond industry, its labyrinth-like complexity can seem intimidating. This fascinating and enlightening tour will introduce students to diamond cutting facilities as well as diamond dealers and appraisers. With the popularity of old mine cut and old European cut diamonds, we’ve added a visit to an antique diamond dealer who sells these magnificent gems.


About the Tour Guide:   Raymond Hakimi, an award winning jewelry designer at Jewel of Ocean, who grew up in an industry business, is also a bench jeweler, metalsmith, dealer, importer, appraiser, jewelry industry historian, and educator.
