Due to continued popularity among students, the International Gemological Institute (IGI) will host its first Jewellery Design course in Antwerp this spring.

Historically offered in Shanghai, India and Dubai, the Antwerp offering is the first European location for the program and will run from March 25 – April 5, 2019. Developed to bring out a budding designer’s innate creativity, IGI’s two-week course emboldens enthusiasts to design with not only ability, but confidence.

Students learn the basics and complexities of designing specific types of jewellery, along with skills such as estimating corresponding costs. Participants will also be taught basic illustration techniques along with practical aspects such as diamond and gemstone sizing, gold karat calculations and final product pricing. “We are thrilled to bring such a highly sought-after class to Antwerp, where IGI was founded and has a rich history,” shares IGI chief executive officer, Roland Lorie. “We are honoured to help fuel the creativity and passion of our students through initiatives such as IGI’s Jewellery Design program. We look forward to continuing to provide these offerings for the betterment of the international jewellery community.”

Additional highlights include a two-day workshop on handcrafted jewellery, guidance on designing a portfolio and the use of simple tools for effective design. Upon completion, students will be awarded the IGI diploma in Jewellery Design. Registration can be completed at igi.org/enquiry_form.php, or by calling +32 3 401 08 88
