The Federation for European Education in Gemmology (FEEG) was set-up in 1995 by several gemmology institutions to create a pan-European gemmology qualification that would be recognised by all bodies and institutions across Europe.
The FEEG Diploma is built from the collective knowledge of Europe’s top gemmological training centres. It challenges trained gemmologists’ theoretical and practical knowledge of over 100 stones, from everyday gems to lesser known minerals. Those that pass both the theoretical and practical exams can use the post-nominal letters, EG.
As a founding member of the FEEG Diploma, graduates of Gem-A’s Gemmology Diploma are eligible to apply for the exam.
