Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group and the oldest jewelry school in the world, Haute École de Joaillerie, teamed up to launch the Loupe Jewellery Academy, which aims to support the next generation of creators within the industry.
Loupe Jewellery Academy's curriculum is based upon design, craftsmanship, sales and marketing, and offers opportunities for cross-generational craftsmanship and innovation. Loupe Jewellery Academy also plans to work with the Gemological Institute of America to bolster young professionals' knowledge of working with precious diamonds, colored stones and pearls.
In June, 12 Chow Tai Fook designers took the first high jewelry design course over the course of six weeks. Going forward, Loupe Jewellery Academy aims to become "a leading provider of supreme education in [the] jewelry industry."
