For some years now, Maison Tournaire has been offering initiation workshops on gemology (the study of precious stones). Thanks to his passion for stones and his past as a teacher, Mathieu Tournaire brings to life these workshops which allow to discover Maison Tournaire and its jewelry from another angle.
Our gemology workshop allows those who participate to discover the science of stones, their meaning and how a jeweler manipulates and observes them. It also allows to discover in a different way the Maison Tournaire and its unique creations, that you will have the chance to manipulate during this workshop of gemology.
The workshop takes place in 3 main parts:
-The first is more theoretical and allows to acquire the basic knowledge and the vocabulary necessary to the understanding of the workshop.
-The second part is devoted to the discovery of precious stones. The Maison Tournaire does not hesitate to break the prejudices that one can have on the latter. You will hold Diamonds, Sapphires, Opals and Tanzanites in your hands, which you can observe at will with a x10 magnifying glass.
-The last part allows the participants to have a direct contact with the Tournaire creations because it is dedicated to their presentation. Between iconic jewelry such as the Trilogie Alchimie ring or the French Kiss ring and more intriguing jewelry like the Archipolis collection, you will discover, accompanied by a gemologist from Maison Tournaire, the spirit of the House and its values.
Thanks to its convivial and participative dimension, this workshop will allow you to immerse yourself in the world of jewelry and gemology.
The gemology workshops are offered at a price of 50 € per person on a selection of dates. You can contact your nearest Tournaire boutique for more information.
