My name is Laura Ecclestone and I graduated in 2008. I am the Store Director of a large jeweller in Canada.
I had heard of CGA through my teacher at a college where I studied Jewellery Design. I had decided to enroll in the daytime accelerated course to give myself a professional edge on the competition. Not only has my education proved successful, I have fallen in love with the gem world through the passionately written syllabus.
The program is exciting and challenging! The staff and instructors are incredibly knowledgable and supportive. Being a fellow member has many benefits as well. With CGA at your core, you are grounded in an industry that is constantly changing and have access to strong contacts in the trade.
