Hi, I want to make your gem buying experience smooth and pleasurable. I have a lot of experience in the gem cutting, purchasing and setting field. Let me help you out with a custom shape or recommendation. I know what you are looking for in quality, and
I can match the stone to the piece. I love the mineral gems of this wonderful Earth, and enjoy seeing them displayed in your work.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Payment
I prefer to use paypal exclusively. I will also accept a U.S. Postal Money order. If you desire for some reason to use a different method, contact me PRIOR to purchase.
Shipping
I ship to ANYWHERE. Standard shipping to the U.S. is 5.75 and an extra.75 for each stone after the first one, and includes delivery confirmation and Insurance.
Canada is 15.00, plus .75 cents per for each subsequent stone for insured Priority mail.
All Other countries, Its 15.00 (U.S.) to ship. plus .50 per stone after the first one. I use first class Registered mail. You accept the risk and you are responsible for any duties or customs fees.
I apologize for this increase, but I just cannot afford the costs incurred due to uninsured mail losses.
**NOTICE - ALL CUSTOMS DUTIES ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CUSTOMER**
Refunds and Exchanges
Gemstones are some of natures most fascinating handiwork. Sometimes they contain natural faults, inclusions, and stress fractures. This can add to or detract from the beauty of the stone. Sometimes though these natural imperfections just don't work for the piece you had in mind. If you are ever not satisfied, for any reason, you can return any stone within seven days for a full refund, minus shipping charges. I only ask that you ship it back in the original method I sent it including insurance and delivery confirmation. The Post Office is not infallible, and it shouldnt come between folks doing business.
Additional policies and FAQs
I have a ten stone ten percent off policy. I will revise your paypal invoice after purchase.

**A NOTE ON COLOR**
I shoot all my photos with 5500 K Daylight bulbs and a Nikon 5700 digital slr.
And I use the cameras white balance for each set of shots.
I do not alter color in any of my photos. I do however adjust the brightness to match the stone in a side by side monitor to stone comparison. This is to make the photo look as natural to the stone as possible.
However all cameras and computers vary in the way they represent color. As well as viewers perception of colors they see. Nikons have a tendency to accentuate reds and associated colors. Reds and oranges may appear more vibrant in photos than they actually are.
My color perception is not as acute or discerning in the red/green spectrum, (I fail those little dot tests in that range) so I make no attempt to try and adjust the color the camera gives me. And the photos are usually just fine.
But if the colors are critical to your choice, be aware of that possibility, and contact me prior to purchase.
Thank you so much.
