This issue has something of a celebration theme, kicking off with a sneak peek at the huge 17th birthday event on Gemporia TV this October. We're also celebrating one whole year of Gemporia Lifestyle too and popping the champagne corks for five years of Gemology by Gemporia itself. To mark the occasion, the magazine is sporting a fresh new look. Here's what else is inside...
Seventeen Things To Look Out For During Gemporia's 17th Birthday Event
Seventeen years... where does the time go? We have the biggest birthday celebration planned for the anniversary of our founding this year, across our TV channels and online. Inside the magazine, we've picked out just 17 things that are happening during the event that you cannot afford to miss, including details of gemstones to look out for and special guests that will be joining us.
Diamond: A Sparkle For All Time
In the final part of our long-running Gemstone Origins feature, we reach deep into the history of Diamond, the most famous and coveted gemstone of all time. Did you know, for example, that until the 1860s, all of the Diamonds ever discovered would have fitted into a single suitcase? From its discovery in India thousands of years ago, we're following the story of this fascinating treasure right up to the modern era.
Gemporia Lifestyle First Birthday
Our Gemporia Lifestyle channel has gone from strength to strength since launching in July 2020. Earlier this summer, in the week the channel turned one year old, we spoke to many of the incredible team members who work so hard to bring you the daily live shows. We chatted with channel manager Guy, producers Addy and Marcus, directors Ed and Alex and presenters Rosie, Milly and Cheralene to see what goes into every single show.
Ozonna Soludo: The Spirituality Of Gemstones
Born in Nigeria and raised on both sides of the Atlantic, singer, actor and artist Ozonna Soludo has a unique perspective on the world and a long-held love for gemstones and their metaphysical energies. Inspired by his journey, energy and spirituality, we’ve invited Oz to curate a collection of hand-picked Gemporia designs. As we prepare to launch the ‘Curated by Oz’ collection, we’ve talked to him about his story so far.
Gemporia Style Guide: Autumnal Accessories
We’ve curated five autumn jewellery collections for you all based around the Pantone® Colour Institue palette forecast for the coming season, including Ultimate Grey, Pale Rosette, Olive Branch, Mykonos Blue and Fire Whirl. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director at Pantone®, says the colours offer “a range of pragmatic hues infused with vivifying bright pops… and convey a promise of reemergence”.
Cutting Edge: Four New Gemstones Cuts
In mid-June, over our three-day Cutting Edge Awards showcase, we celebrated not only the finest existing cuts ever to have been created but also introduced four brand new never-before-seen cuts. They were all running to be crowned the inaugural winner of our Cutting Edge Award for Gemstone Cutting Excellence. Here, we present the four gorgeous new cuts and reveal which one won the award for those of you who missed the show.
Five Years Of Gemology By Gemporia
This issue of Gemology marks five years since the very first edition launched. To celebrate, we're taking a look back at every issue we've published so far, with a brief overview of each edition and our favourite picks from each one for you to read online. This time, we're covering the first half of our run so far, from issues one to eleven. You’ll find behind the scenes tales from the making of the magazine too!
The Quick Guide To... Clarity & Transparency
It would be easy to assume that clarity is a reasonably straightforward way of describing how clear a gemstone is, but as is often the case with jewellery - especially when it comes to the science - it’s slightly more complicated than that. That's why our Quick Guide series continues this issue with a brief overview of the science and terminology behind transparency in gemstones.
