A Gemstone Masterclass with Boodles
Hosted by Gem X Core Amy Ainscough and Jody Wainwight, Director of Gemstones at Boodles.
Pink might be the official color of Valentine’s Day, but after last week, pink has us thinking only of Boodles. During our recent “Gemstone Masterclass” at Boodles on London’s Bond Street, Director of Gemstones Jody Wainwright pulled out all the stops – in this case meaning, all the incredible gems. From type 2a diamond rough, to large, juicy aquamarines, to several spectacular “Hubba Bubba Boodles Pink” diamonds from the now closed Argyle mine (pink is the official Boodles color, as you will have noticed if you’ve visited one of their stores).
We marvelled at the beauty of such high-quality gems and the opportunity to learn about them from Jody, who gets to source these incredible stones himself. Also, he gave us a peek into the unique history of Boodles, the only jeweler of its kind, which we can think of, that has remained in the family for going on six generations.
A big, sparkly thank you to Jody, Gem X Core Member Amy Ainscough and @boodles for an incredible day!
