    It's usually the same scenario: A new ISG RGA student contacts me and says, "I don't really care about watches...do I have to take that course?" My answer is always the same: "You have to study watches if you are ever going to be worth your salt as an appraiser, so the answer is...yes, you have to take this course." Later on, of course, I hear that the student loved the study of watches and did not realize just how much the study of gemology meets the study of horology. In truth, these two "ology's" have been an integral part of each other for centuries. Watches have been an important part of the jewelry industry since watches were invented. The artistry that goes into creating a fine timepiece rivals even the finest jewelry design artistry, with intricacies that go far beyond what many students understand in the beginning.

    Have you ever wondered why one diamond can be very brilliant, while another diamond may look dull and lifeless? Or perhaps you sell diamonds and cannot figure out why the guy down the street can sell the same VS2/G diamond that you have, and yet constantly beat your price by 30%? Well, it all boils down to a little cone shaped structure you see in the graphic at left. It's known as the "critical angle" and it is the most important property of a diamond related to beauty. This imaginary cone controls the brilliance, beauty and value of a diamond more than anything else. Diamontaires have to know and understand the critical angle in order to produce the finest quality.
