About

The Path Less Taken...

The heart of Lane Gemstones & Lapidary (LGL) is the uniquely cut gemstone. Yes, most all gemstones are beautiful and make great jewelry and provide much enjoyment. But, the well cut gemstone is set apart by it's maximized beauty and precision cut.

Most all commercially available gemstones are cut in Asia in mass quantity. The Asian cutters have two priorities, yield and speed. In other words get the most carat weight out of the gemstone rough in the quickest fashion. These two priorities produce stones that are cut way below what their potential could have been.

Gemstones all have unique light reflecting properties that need to be taken into consideration when cutting the stone. Angles have to be chosen carefully to get that fire that everyone wants to see. Most times to achieve that greater potential of the stone, carat weight has to be sacrificed. This simply will not happen with the Asian cutters because too much money is at stake and profit must be maximized. It is the way of things...

At LGL as an American gemstone cutter our focus is on the quality of the cut to enhance a piece of gemstone rough to it's greatest potential. Angles are cut properly, facets are cut in proper proportions, and polishing is done to as close to perfection as possible. A typical LGL cut finished gemstone can take a total of 5-8 hours to complete. Our cuts will be unique patterns not likely be seen in any jewelry store. The Asian cutting houses simply would go out of business if they took the proper time to finish a gemstone to the same standards. The extra effort spent is well worth it in terms of beauty return.

Our goal is to create Unique Heirloom Quality Gemstones and Jewelry for you and your family. Something special that is passed down from generation to generation.

Kindest Regards & God Bless,

Kelly

    My rock hound tendencies started when I was a child. I would spend hours with rocks from our gravel driveway and crack them open to see the quartz crystals exposed in some of them. Likewise today I can spend hours cutting a single stone and love it!
