The stone is absolutely beautiful - photos really cannot do it justice. Rachael and Gregg were very approachable and helpful throughout the process, always swift with updates (I asked for an extra GIA certification which they were happy to accommodate) and always happy to help. I would recommend Lockwood and Sloan to anyone.
Ethically sourced, natural Imperial Topaz, mined, cut and sold with integrity www.lockwoodandsloan.com
Hi. We're Gregg & Rachael, restaurateurs turned gem dealers and the Lockwood and Sloan behind this operation.
We run this business on the same two principles which made our restaurants so successful: integrity and impeccable customer service.
We source our rough gems from a small, family operated mine outside of Ouro Preto, Brazil where three generations of miners work side by side. They work the old fashioned way, with shovels and wheelbarrows. There is no heavy equipment, no massive pit mines. It's an environmentally sustainable operation run by just six men who earn a fair share of the profit they generate.
If you are looking for ethically sourced, environmentally responsible gemstones, you won't find many that fit the bill better than these.
We write every gemstone description ourselves. We do our best to accurately describe each stone, including it's flaws. You should know exactly what you are buying and what it is truly worth. That's part of that whole integrity thing. We are also committed to customer service. If you are not happy with ANYTHING, we will make it right. Whether that means refunding your money, accepting a return weeks down the road or sending you a new stone overnight, we are determined to make you absolutely ecstatic with each and every purchase.
This topaz is incredible stuff. It's beautiful. It's rare. Each stone we have in our inventory is completely unique. And so is the way we do business.
You won't find the twin to any of our topaz at any jewelry store. And you won't find another gem business where the owners care as much as we do.
