Get to know the methods and techniques for making jewellery products that tell a story of tradition and innovation. This is what awaits you with the English-language Master's Course in Jewellery Design at IED Roma
The jewellery industry has long attracted the interest of an entire world of culture, with studies, research and much attention being paid to it on both historical and anthropological sides. This is precisely because jewels today are used to tell stories, desires and identities. Making jewellery means opening doors to a human ancestral desire to reveal one’s value and sense of achievement, as a way to represent oneself and the society.
Today, becoming a jewellery designer means learning how to create and make jewels. To do this, knowledge of different types of materials is just necessary. You need to know how to use them, understand all their limits and how best to work with them. The Master's Course in Jewellery Design at IED Roma will provide you with a general, cross-industry overview of the different market trends, covering everything from luxury to contemporary jewellery, and with a focus on global business dynamics.
