Course

Gemmology was an almost inherent part of Benoît Charbonneau's training, after 6 years of jewellery studies. After graduating and winning a prize, the young gemmologist first worked as a jeweller in the prestigious workshops of Place Vendôme, then for the Chopard House in St Barths for 6 years. Before returning to France, he spent six months at the GIA in the United States to perfect his technical knowledge of gemmology.

At the end of this experience in St Barths, for an elitist clientele, this jeweller-gemmologist settled in France. After several positions in the jewellery sector, Benoît Charbonneau's experience, knowledge and personality finally find an effective way to express themselves by specialising in the trading business and creating his company GEM SELECTION in 2015.

Each gem being unique, we attach great importance to the selection of all our stones according to your requirements, for a perfect realization of your creations. On each of our trips we remain in close collaboration with you, with the help of photos and videos when choosing your stones from the supplier countries.
