THE ACADEMY'S STORY
After repeated demands and suggestions from his entourage and a growing demand from the market, master jeweler Yves Lemay decided to put together his own educational book covering all the basics of the world of jewelry and gemology, and launch a trial class in 2009. His reputation along with the quality of his jewelry formation programs later lead him to give seminars to the sales and upper management team of top luxury brand Piaget.

OUR METHODOLOGY
The Academy bases its philosophy on very basic but firm beliefs:

Dedicated and motivated craftsmen only need to get good basics and understand both the materials and the tools involved through targeted and pertinent exercises: their development will come naturally through the time they’ll spend practicing on their own.

To that mean, the Academy bases its philosophy on several key ingredients which have well-earned the academy’s reputation:
