Acquire right education at the right place
Jewellery Design at AOD

It is said that if one strolls through the Egyptian wing of an art museum, you will find spectacular pieces of jewellery of all kinds. What was admired by Cleopatra is still true today. For thousands of years, people have used jewellery to adorn their bodies and celebrate special occasions.

fine piece of jewellery is no less than a masterful work of art, one we have the luxury of displaying on ourselves rather than the wall. Today, the creation of fine and costume jewellery is also a multi-billion-dollar global industry dominated by such big names as Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, and Bulgari. Forecasts by Fashion experts or varying trends in jewellery, usually does not influence a person when buying jewellery. What ultimately attracts that person to a piece of jewellery, is aesthetically pleasing design and proper execution of that piece.

To succeed in this competitive and highly specialized field, jewellery designers need imagination and creativity together professional training. The ability to spot a diamond in the rough, to foresee the trends that will soon be in high demand, and to manufacture custom pieces to meet exact measurements and customers desires are not born talents. They can be acquired with the right education and experience.
