Octonus to present NEW Diamond Optical /Beauty
Workshop at MGJ Conference in Cyprus

Since education is critical to enable the diamond and jewellery industry to grow and to endure difficult times, the Mediterranean Gem and Jewellery Conference organizers CGL-GRS (Canada) and IGL (Greece) have prepared 11 talks from international experts and 5 practical workshops with the latest research samples on natural, treated and synthetic diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and opals. Workshops seats are so popular that 90% are sold out.

Octonus is a pioneer in applying technology to analyse the appearance of diamonds by their geometrical parameters, to optimise the value of cut diamonds, including instruments to plot inclusions as well as software to plan highest value cuts, and to communicate unique diamond features, like brilliance and fire alongside the trade chain to the end consumer.

The company will present “Diamond Optical Performance / Diamond Beauty Workshop” in Limassol on May 19 – Morning (9:00 AM to 12:45 PM) and analyse what makes a diamond ‘beautiful’ and how to communicate diamond beauty to customers. Instructors are Sergey Sivovolenko and Roman Serov, and the workshop with diamonds is designed for all levels of the diamond trade, gemologists, appraisers, retailers and designers.

A few highlights from the workshop are:

• Cornerstone diamond data of greatest consumer value, which are absent in Lab grading reports: Beauty and Spread. How to describe these features, observe them in real diamonds and effectively communicate to clients.

• Perceived expressions of Diamond Beauty: various outstanding combinations of Brilliance, Fire and Scintillation dependent on diamond shape/proportions and viewing conditions.

• Diamond Spread - the important sales tool and source of client's satisfaction

• Diamond movies - the new convenient way to demonstrate to clients the key optical effects of Diamond Beauty.

The 5th Mediterranean Gemmological and Jewellery conference will take place in Limassol, Cyprus on May 17-19. The major theme of MGJ Conference 2019 in Cyprus will be “Manufacturing of Diamonds and Gems” with 11 speakers covering this topic.

Invited speakers are Roman Serov and Olga Okhrimenko from Octonus (Finland), while other international experts are John Chapman (Gemetrix, Australia), Dr. Michael Schlamadinger (Swarovski, Austria), Katrien De Corte (HRD Belgium), Gary Holloway (Holloway Diamonds, Australia), Dr. Stefanos Karampelas & Abeer Al-Alawi (Bahrain Institute for Pearls & Gemstones, DANAT), Stefan Müller (DSEF Lab, Germany), Dr. Clemens Schwarzinger (Clemens Schwarzinger Gemstones, Austria), Gamini Zoisa (Ceylon Gemmological Services, Sri Lanka) and Edward Boehm (Rare Source Gems, USA).
