About the Course:
The Science of Gemcutting course combines traditional gemological knowledge with the advanced understanding of optics required for gemstone design and optimization. The course was written as compliment to our Cutting and Recutting for Gem Business course but can be enjoyed by anyone in the gem and gemcutting trade who wants to dive deeper into the physical world of gemcutting.

This course will cover advanced optics that haven’t been previously presented; software design, design aesthetics, along with an extensive exploration of color and its manipulation.

The course will utilize the CAD software GemCutStudio to teach students how to design their own cuts as well as modifying and optimizing pre-existing cuts. Not only will students learn HOW to design gem cuts from scratch but they will learn WHY different cuts help or hurt the color and brightness of a stone as well as WHAT each of the traditional cutting styles does for light and dark toned stones.
