AlternativesLapidary's Shop Announcement

Superlative quality loose faceted gemstones and cabochons, hand crafted by Philip Lagas-Rivera. Alternatives Lapidary provides a variety of natural and lab created stones for engagement rings, fashion and statement jewelry, daily wear and special occasion pieces.

I'm very pleased to finally be able to offer loose, perfectly cut moissanites in my shop! Moissanite is the gem trade name for the mineral silicon carbide. It is grown in perfect gem quality wafers in laboratories and cuts breathtakingly bright and fiery stones.

Also, I am happy to introduce a very good friend of mine, Hana, who will be contributing her own high quality cabochons to the store! She and I share a lifelong obsession with rocks and minerals, and she recently took to the wheel to start crafting gems of her very own. I am very happy to be able to provide a venue for her stones to reach the world.

I am currently offering limited custom cutting of lab created sapphire and spinel, and I am happy to ship all over the world! Thanks for looking and have a great day!
