Montreal School of Gemmology student awarded with Christie’s Prize


The Montreal School of Gemmology (EGM) has awarded a student with the prestigious Christie’s Prize for Gemmology award. It’s annually awarded to those who have taken the Gemmological Association of Great Britain’s (Gem-A) Diploma exams and has gotten the best results.

The student, Elie-Anne Caya, received her award at the annual Gem-A graduation ceremony located at the Goldsmith’s Hall in London by Christie’s director Mr. Keith Penton. Caya will receive gemmological instruments worth £500.

“It has already been 15 years since EGM started offering preparatory classes for the Gem-A exams. We have had students come here from around the world and each year our student’s results are amongst the best,” says Odile Civitello, president and founder of EGM. CJ
