Mosaic members and friends are invited to meet Menaham Sevdermish at 4.00 pm
Menahem came to the UK from Israel, after his release from the IDF where he served as a medic. His first job was as a porter at Northwick Park Hospital. A chance advert in the Harrow Observer led to his working for a jewellery manufacturer in Hatton Garden. Whilst there, he attended the John Cass College, where he studied Gemmology, passing with distinction and becoming a Fellow of the Gemmological Association of GB, far from his intention of becoming a doctor!
On returning to Israel in 1974, he established the first gemmological laboratory and school of gemmology in Israel. He went on to write “The Dealer’s Book of Gems & Diamonds” which was the first book on this subject in Hebrew, later to be translated into English and even Chinese. The book is used as a recognised text book at the Gem-A in London. He is an internationally recognised authority on gem commercialisation and gemstone processing, sourcing and cutting. “GemeWizard” is Menahem’s brainchild. This invention is a digital solution for colour communication in gemstones and diamonds, gem grading with a diamond and gem trading platform used worldwide as a teaching tool as well as for trade and appraisals.
