Frequently asked questions
Shipping and Tracking

We ship using Australia Post only. Our experience is that delivery is reliable and cost is reasonable compared to other options.

Please be aware that all Australian shipping includes tracking, but, to minimise the default cost for international orders, standard international shipping does not.

If you are outside Australia and want the ability to track your shipment please choose the relevant shipping option when checking out.

Australia Post has a calculator for shipping times and it can be found at this URL -
http://www1.auspost.com.au/gc/

When using the calculator select Australia, set the origin Postcode to 4350. Just remember that the date provided is an estimate only. If fact, we think the calculator is optimistic and delivery usual

About Photos and Colours

In these 2 dimensional photos the 3 dimensional depth of colour is extremely hard to show. The photos do not show the different levels of colour and internal structure of the gem. However, in the hand under normal sunlight you will find the play of colour absolutely amazing.

The Parti Gems cabochons have a depth of colour that can only be appreciated in the hand in good light. When held in the hand the gems colours will flash and change as you move it about, much like an opal.

All glass reflects light that does make it hard to photograph. Reflections can mask the detail beneath and flatten the image even more.

Given all this, we are confident you will be more than happy with your purchase.

How We Make our Parti Gems Cabochons

We make our Parti Gems cabochons here in Australia using a process we have developed over a great deal of trial and error. The gem material from which we cut each gem is crafted from quality raw materials and processed in our studio.

Just like cutting natural gemstones, we then carefully inspect the raw material before selectively cutting it to extract the best gems possible.

Each gem is then meticulously hand crafted to refine the shape for the best colour and brilliance.

Final shaping, such as facets and doming, is all done by hand by talented craftpersons. The final polish is then applied, before a final inspection determines if it is suitable for release.

Types and Finishes of Parti Gem Cabochons

To give you a broad variety of products to choose from, and to inspire your imagination, we are always looking for new shapes, styles and finishes for our cabochons.

The body colours and elements, background colours, body composition and surface finish will vary considerably.

The shapes will also vary considerable, as we try to give you plenty or variation to incorporate in your creations.

You will find we may leave our cabochons with a rough surface finish, or we may give it a satin or high polish.

Internally, you may see a clear body with intriguing body elements, such as seams of colour, small bubbles and filaments, or it may be more uniform in colour and content.

In summary, we want you to be intrigued and surprised.

Custom and personalised orders

If you love our Parti Gems™ but would really like something in a particular shape, please lodge a custom order. Due to the creation process, we can't duplicate a colour exactly, though we may be able to achieve a colour that is suitable.
