A qualified jewellery buyer must have a good sensitivity of jewellery price, strong comprehensive ability of data analysis, market analysis and consumer behavior analysis, all of which come from the actual contact and experience accumulation in the market. With the "Cheats" studying from theoretical class and guided by Mr. Mok and professional tutors, the students formed a buyer team to actually combat in the Hong Kong Jewellery show, which became a most unique and most pioneering team in the show.


The buyer team in the HK show


Aimed at the most popular kinds of gems, such as rubies, sapphires, emeralds, diamonds, pearls, jadeite etc., the buyer team researched a number of representative exhibitors and fully understood and compared their market and trends, to accumulate buyers’ experience. In order to enhance the effectiveness, the course carefully set up the "buyer's fund" for buyers to combat. Such “high” course configuration is probably no two!

After the actual combat, buyer team understood the current status and future trends of the jewellery market. According to their analysis, ruby, sapphire and emerald are very popular. The prices of high-quality varieties of them are strong. The demand of diamonds is stable and the market is strong. The prices of high-quality jadeite remain high. The market of pearl is hot, and the sea pearls are generally bullish. In addition, spinel, paraiba and other emerging varieties have good appreciation potential.


Dazzling and beautiful gems


The gems, as shown in above picture, from left to right, from top to bottom respectively, are top-quality jadeite necklace, top-quality jadeite earrings, sea pearls with different grades from Japan, jadeite decorations, unique "golden sheen sapphire" from Kenya, sapphire from the latest mine in Madagascar and other origin sapphires, emeralds from Ethiopia's latest mine.

The current domestic and foreign jewellery training courses put more focus on the identification, design, marketing, appreciation and other independent training course, and lack professional buyers training course based on the market and actual combat. The students from buyer team have said that the training course were very useful and closed to the market.
