"We would like to say a big thank you again to Marie Chalmers for such an enjoyable day learning about diamonds. My sister and I had a brilliant time and were still buzzing for days afterwards. Marie manages to find the right approach, and wonderful combination, of being effortlessly friendly whilst remaining professional, and extremely informative. We learnt so much throughout the course of the day which had fascinating content and valuable practical hands on experience. We also enjoyed a quick tour, meeting the experts and seeing the high tech equipment used.
A truly wonderful and memorable day that has given us more confidence when looking at diamonds."
Barbara Baker and Brenda Smith
“We have sent staff from The Jewellery Channel on training courses at Assay Office Birmingham and will be doing so again next year. The practical hands on courses are extremely informative and commercially very beneficial.”

"HM Revenue & Customs regularly send staff on training courses at Assay Office Birmingham and will be doing so again in 2015."
"I learnt an enormous amount and came away completely buzzing with new information and above all excitement.
Your presentation was excellent from looking at the trade and hallmarking in a global perspective to its history and current trends.
The day was incredibly well structured and informative – and the only thing I would add is that you could easily make it into a two day course."
Emma de Sybel
"On behalf of Emma and Sophie may I thank you for putting on such a welcoming and educational event. Both Emma and Sophie thoroughly enjoyed the day and have returned full of enthusiasm.
Please keep us informed of future events that you run in the future as other members of my team and I are very keen to participate following the very positive feedback."
