PristineGemstones' Shop Announcement

Precision cut gemstones by Rogerio Graca for engagement rings and other fine jewelry are our specialty. Please also visit our finished jewelry shop on Etsy: www.etsy.com/shop/pristinejewelry

Our gemstones come to you directly from Rogerio Graca, a professional gem cutter and wholesale gemstone supplier with 20 years of experience in the industry, so you can be confident in our products, pricing, and service. (we also have a loose gemstones shop on Etsy: www.etsy.com/shop/pristinegemstones)

Rogerio precision cuts our gemstones (only 5% of gemstones on the market today are precision cut). Here is a blog on the importance of precision cut gemstones that Rogerio prepared: http://pristinegemstonejewelryintro.blogspot.ca/2012/12/the-importance-of-precision-cut-gemstone.html

Who we are and why you might want to shop with us:

My name is Rogerio Graca, and I have worked as a professional gem cutter and wholesale supplier for over 22 years. My wife, Andrea and I run both Pristine Gemstones and Pristine Jewelry Etsy shops.

We operate our business with the goal of providing a consistently high level customer service. One of the ways that we achieve this is to use Rogerio's expertise as a professional gem cutter to help educate customers in making informed gemstone investment choices.

The main difference between my gemstones and most of the gemstones that come directly from mining sites, is their extra brilliance due to the fact that I use a precision cutting machine to cut my stones at their correct refractive index.

With the use of my precision cut machine, I maximize brilliance rather than retaining weight (weight retention is a common practice adopted in mining sites where rudimentary machines are still in use). The excess weight in the bottom of gemstones compromises the gemstone's ability to reflect light, not to mention the fact that gemstones are priced by carat weight and will cost more with the unecessary weight retention.

When you are buying from Pristine Gemstones, you are buying directly from the gem cutter and artist rather than a gemstone factory that mass produces without the same concern for quality.

Pristine Gemstones deals only with pristine material direct from conflict free countries. All of my gemstones are 100% natural, and I stand behind my work and my stones. There will be the minor treatments to some stones that may only cause subtle changes in a stone, such as the common practice of heat treatment.

For color accuracy, pictures are taken under natural light outside but minor deviations in color should be expected as every computer monitor may register color slightly differently.

We do take custom orders for cutting of gemstones in our inventory. Such sales will be final.

Please note: All of our communications regarding purchases are done via email for organizational reasons. However we do understand concerns about shopping online; therefore, we offer a courtesy call to every new customer so that our customers can hear the voice behind our online shops. If you would like such a call, please convo us or leave a message at 250-661-0967 and please leave the best time to return your call along with the time zone from which you are calling. We are operating on Pacific Standard time.

Enjoy your time while shopping at Pristine Gemstones, and please let us know if we can be of any help.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Rogerio and Andrea
