MOST POSITIVELY REVIEWED SCHOOL IN THE WORLD

 

 

Dear student,

Nice to meet you, my name is Pier Paolo Gerardi, and I am the founder of the Gerardi Setting School.

If you have come this far and are about to read this page (which I invite you to read all the way to the end), it means that most likely, you are not only interested in becoming a professional setter, but you are interested in excelling and becoming one of the best setters in the world.  

However, before I tell you my story and what led me to create THE TRINOCULAR SETTING METHOD: the method to achieve perfect setting, and what is unanimously considered today as the No.1 setting school in Europe, I want to tell you why the Gerardi Setting School was born.

It all starts from the love for jewelry and the vision of a young man who, like you, had a big dream.

The dream of training the best stone setters in the world and doing it in the shortest time possible.

The dream of breaking down the walls of narrow-mindedness and conveying to people the will to always strive for perfection in their jewelry and never give up.

The Gerardi Setting School was born to help people achieve the greatest success.

The Gerardi Setting School was born to bring about a lasting change, a radical revolution in the world of high jewelry.

MY STORY

 

My name is Pier Paolo Gerardi, I am the owner and master of the Accademia Delle Arti Orafe, the most important and oldest goldsmith school in Italy, and the founder of the Gerardi Setting School, the No.1 setting school in Europe.

But first of all, I am a researcher and an innovator.

You should know that my entire life has been dedicated to researching the best setting techniques.

A path that was anything but easy, considering that in the past it was very difficult, if not impossible, to find masters in Italy willing to share their secrets.

Even though my first master (one of the best setters in Rome) taught at my Academy, founded by my father, I soon realized that this knowledge would not be enough if I really wanted to create something innovative.

So I decided to embark on a long journey, choosing to dedicate my entire life to the constant pursuit of perfection. 

I studied, experimented, and searched everywhere for techniques and equipment that I could combine into my broader vision.

Because on every journey, wherever I went, I realized that only through constant research and innovation can something unique be created.

My goal was to create a completely practical study method that would allow my students to become the best setters in the world in the shortest time possible.

So, after years of research, I managed to revolutionize my concept of teaching and create my method, what I call “The Trinocular Setting Method”.

The Trinocular Setting Method is the result of years of experimentation and encompasses my essence and vision of the jewel.

 

 

The Trinocular Setting Method
THE METHOD TO ACHIEVE PERFECT SETTING

 

My method, the “Trinocular Setting Method”, is named after the special microscopes with which it is taught. The method encompasses years of experimentation and consists of teaching a set of innovative techniques to master the art of setting perfectly and in the shortest possible time.

Every bench at the Gerardi Setting School is equipped with a special trinocular (3-eye) microscope and a dedicated screen that allows the student to understand every step of the explanation in detail and apply a set of high-precision techniques to their jewelry.

These screens also allow the teacher to perfectly monitor every movement and technical detail of the student, thus bringing anyone who enters the Gerardi Setting School to the highest level of setting and precision.

Thanks to the trinocular method, in a very short time, even starting from zero, one becomes a complete professional capable of creating extraordinarily high-quality jewelry and working at the highest levels of high jewelry.

So, if you are already a setter and want to learn incredible new techniques or if you are starting from scratch and want to become a true professional, I look forward to seeing you at my school.

Our goal is to make our students the best setters in the world, ensuring a preparation that will allow them to work at the highest levels of high jewelry from the very beginning.

100% Positive Reviews

We are the most positively reviewed goldsmith school in the world with a rating of 5 stars out of 5 from over 324 online reviews.



Absolutely recommended. High jewelry requires having skills and developing your abilities with the wise use of the right tools.
I attended the setting and micro-setting course with gravermax taught by Pier Paolo. In a work context where everyone knows how to do everything,
you need to aim high, which is why I chose to attend the courses of the Accademia delle Arti Orafe.
Without the help I received at the Academy, in my opinion, it would be impossible to think of standing out or enhancing your work.
I had the pleasure of experiencing firsthand the high level of technology and skills made available to students, but above all, the great passion
with which support is provided daily. Passion and dedication, technology and tradition. Paying attention to the small things makes the difference
and excellence.

Last year I had the opportunity to take the 400-hour stone setting course. It was undoubtedly a wonderful and unique experience.

I learned more about stone setting than I ever thought possible. Every day I noticed I was improving more and more thanks to my teacher Pier!

He took the time to explain everything clearly. He made sure all the goals I had regarding stone setting became a reality.

The school also provides you with the right gravers and information about tools to continue stone setting at home!

I was also eager to learn something about engraving, and this was also possible in my last week.
I would recommend the school to anyone who loves jewelry making. It was an experience I will never forget!

I took the gravermax 300H professional setting and micro-setting course, which lasted 2 months. It was an amazing experience!

I really did not expect to learn so much in such a short time. Not only is the organization of the program very good and personalized, but the teachers are very good teachers.

I had time to solve all the questions I had and do more of what I expected to learn. For sure, once you finish the course, you will have learned how to work professionally.
