Here's where you jeweler types are going to want to plan to spend your day visiting my store.
I began as a stone cutter, so I have an extensive knowledge of cabochon styles, quality and, well: let’s just say I live and breathe stone cutting. I try to offer you options. I have many types of cabochons, as well as cut shapes. I have what you could call a divided stock, between those cut in North America, most often by myself or other local stonecutters I support. Alongside these cabs, you will also find stones cut overseas. I visit other countries multiple times a year to source these stones. Sometimes I buy ready-made; other times, I contract cutters to work for me. If any of the thousands of cabochons in the showroom do not appeal to you, we provide custom cutting.
You know, there aren't a lot of us that set these. It took me years to appreciate them. But now, I can't make a piece without one. Gemstones, whether small or big, are a bold statement in artisan jewelry. I carry semi precious and Precious. That means- everything from $1 amethysts to high end emeralds and sapphires. I catour to many crowds, but the finest gems should be purchased from reputable gemologists. I tend more towards the art of it all, so I have had some very unorthodox stone faceted. you'll find our local jade, carnelions, botswana agate, petrified woods, and more among the conventional smokey quartz, amethyst, aquamarines and opals. I am a patron of our provincial stones, and thus, you will find Whistler quartz, black and yellow agates, and other local stones dug by myself or mining friends.
I have many larger stones, fancy cut, standard cut, as well as small stones, as low as .5mm rounds.
