Throughout December, VASHI is celebrating the recent launch of its store in Westfield with a series of diamond jewellery master classes. The master classes will explain and curate the history of diamonds and diamond jewellery.

With a combined 50 years of experience, the resident craftsmen of VASHI are knowledgeable and skilled in the craft of jewellery making. Customers collaborate with the craftsmen to make their jewellery, resulting in unique ‘made by you’ pieces and a deeper understanding of diamond and metal work.

The master classes range from uncovering the ‘Four Cs’ to hands-on workshop sessions, allowing customers to not only learn but also engage with the gems and the VASHI team. There is a limit of just six people per session, which run five days a week until the December 22nd.

The full master class programme is as follows:

‘Beyond The Four Cs’ - How to choose the perfect diamond

Learn how to assess the myriad of mysteries behind a diamond’s sparkle beyond just the four Cs (colour, clarity, carat and cut) and why VASHI rejects 90% of the diamonds it sees. This will be a hands-on experience, getting you up close and personal with some seriously stunning rocks, all ethically sourced and traceable back to their kimberlite origins.

‘Inspiration to Illustration’ - How to design diamond jewellery

Here you’ll learn how to sketch and illustrate diamond jewellery under the expert tutelage of a VASHI designer. Discover the techniques of the trade for turning everyday inspiration into your own unique pieces. You will be shown how mood boards can channel inspiration into actual drawings and, in doing so, find out what makes great craftsmanship and brilliant design.

‘Idea to Creation’ - How to make bespoke diamond jewellery

Now you have a design, here’s how to make it into a bespoke piece. This class reveals the behind-the-scenes process of creation, where craft and graft meet. There’ll be plenty of opportunity to roll up your sleeves and get involved or just watch and wonder; it’s your call.

Workshop - Diamond jewellery creation

Learn how the VASHI craftsmen shape, taper, hammer and polish. They will share with you the qualities of their precious metals and how they blend the latest technology with age-old craft. You can even have a go yourself at positioning and setting a diamond under the expert guidance of a VASHI Alchemist.
