A Gem of a Talk, A Talk about Gems

Pamela is now available for speaking engagements.  A Gem of a Talk, A Talk about Gems is an informative — yet accessible and engaging — presentation that is perfect for social club meetings, light entertainment for trade shows, and industry events (particularly in the fashion industry). The presentation is also available in conjunction with a Disegno Fine Jewellery trunk show. In this lively presentation, Pamela will introduce you to:
  • what natural gems are ...
  • ... and are not! Including synthetics, simulants, composites, assembled gems and gem treatments;
  • how we categorize gems into species, groups and varieties;
  • an overview of testing and identifying gems;
  • considerations in grading gems;
  • considerations in designing gems into jewellery;
  • care of gems and jewellery;
  • and lots of time for questions!
Pamela has 30 years of expertise including professional training in jewellery design and gemmology. As a feature writer for Ottawa Life Magazine’s The Jewellery Box series, Pamela is constantly adding to her knowledge base.
