"An outstanding course. The challenge of separating laboratory-grown diamonds was de-mystified...

 If you are a valuer, a business owner or a jewellery professional then this is a 'must attend' course.


I can't recommend it highly enough."

- Damon Barker
WORKSHOP: Identifying  laboratory-grown diamonds

"It was simply excellent. If you work with diamonds, unless you've already done this workshop, you need to do this workshop. You don't have time to research and learn all this stuff yourself. Julia hands it to you on a plate. It's not cheap, but it's exceptional value for money, and in the long run will save you time, money and stress."

Hey there

I'm Julia Griffith

I own and operate THE GEM ACADEMY! Welcome!

I specialise in laboratory-grown diamond education online and in practical workshops. Laboratory-grown diamonds are increasing in prevalence. Misinformation is common and many jewellery professionals are confused about how they can be identified. I can not think of a more important subject to focus on. Come and learn about laboratory-grown diamonds with me! I'll guide you through everything you need to know.

Check out all my courses here!

"The Gem Academy has not disappointed me yet... Although, they may have ruined other programs for me as this is simply the most comprehensive and easiest to learn resource for laboratory-grown diamonds available."
