EGM student awarded Chubb Prize for Excellence


Montreal School of Gemmology (EGM) has given the Chubb Prize for Excellence to student Alice Renfer, who has passed the Gem-A Diploma Preparatory course and the EGM Gem and Jewellery Appraisal Course with flying colours. This marks the second time that an EGM student has been honoured with the award.

Gemworld International President Mr. Richard Drucker awarded Renfer with the prize at the EGM reception on November 3 in London, alongside other students graduating from the program. The prize was sponsored by Chubb, an insurance company.

EGM’s Gem and Jewellery Appraisal Course is nationally and internationally recognized for teaching students proper training and code of conduct.

“This course is an intensive and demanding program with an emphasis on practical hands-on exercises, designed to prepare gemmologists for the particular challenges of appraisal work,” says Odile Civitello, president and founder of EGM. CJ
