are the changes to look for on the All That Glitters Website for September
This Month's Special: Carved
Mint Merelani Garnet, Sapphire/Diamond Ballerina Ring, Sculpted Yellow Beryl
are always interested in new things, whether it is a new find of minerals/gems
or even trying something new when it comes to the Monthly Special. We have three items displayed on the Monthly
Special page for September.
Make an Offer - something new and
different which we have never done in the past, but if there is positive
feedback, we will occasionally do this a few times perhaps throughout the year.
We will take offers via email and at the
end of the month, we will review the highest offer; if we can manage to sell it
at that price, these pieces could have a new home. We are off to the Far East if all goes well
at the end of the year. Funds obtained
will be used to make purchases at the expected very high new prices that we
have seen over the past few years and that we now expected to pay….

Newly Faceted or Photographed Gemstones:
Just back from the cutters within the past few days is a Fancy
Concave Faceted Ametrine. The rough
weighed 97.15cts and the finished gemstone is 31.66cts. It was faceted to show the unique coloring
within the rough. Another must see as
this is a real beauty and a custom cut was created just for this gemstone -
designed by an award winning cutter/artist.
Would make a great pendant or pearl enhancer and could be set in more
than one way. A row or two of white
diamonds would accent the piece nicely.
