At the heart of our association are our members and we host a number of events both in London, within the UK and around the globe where members can connect with Gem-A staff, fellow gem enthusiasts and professionals from within the trade. A number of popular events are available to book through our website:


Gem Central is an informative gemmology evening for Gem-A members, students and guests.

Depending on the topic, the session may take the form of theory-based learning with industry examples. It may be a more practical session where students can gain additional practical experience, gem and mineral enthusiasts can handle other collections and members of the jewellery trade can examine some of the new synthetic or treated stones on the market.

Regardless of the type of evening, Gem Central is always an excellent opportunity to learn information, to share knowledge and connect with others in the gem and diamond community.
