    In-house tutor

    Claire Scragg began her journey with gems and jewelry in the 1990s working for two family-owned retail jewelers in Great Britain. Over that time, her fascination with gemstones grew into a passion and brought her to full-time study with Gem-A (The Gemmological Association of Great Britain).

    After graduating, Claire became a full-time staff member at Gem-A working as a Gemology and Diamond instructor at their London Headquarters (2004- 2017). Today, after moving to the USA, she continues as an online instructor for Gem-A’s ODL programme and as an ATC instructor at the JTV Gemological Training Center.

    Claire is Manager of Learning and Development at JTV (Jewelry Television) and remains dedicated to sharing her passion and knowledge of gemstones with others.
