Gemstones in Cutting:
Three gemstones are currently being refaceted by our Master Cutter. They are a certed Ruby, an unusual Teal Sapphire which will be a Radiant, and a nice deep Blue Namibian Tourmaline! We thought that the beauty of these gemstones could be improved by being tweeked eventhough the cost of recutting and weight loss will be costly. We hope to have them available on line just before the next monthly email is sent out.
