A high quality aqua I finished for a client recently,dimensions 10.5x7.5 3 carats.

Lastly an engagement ring with stones cut and set for another client,the three stones are two 5mm Nigerian aqua's and the middle gem is a 6.2mm mint green/yellow tourmaline.The pictures definitely do the ring and stones no justice,especially the center piece which is a much more vibrant green in person.
Custom Cut Gems

It's been a while since the last post on this blog but I promise to do a better job of keeping it current.
My excuse is that my busy schedule and custom orders have taken the majority of my time..okay I know not a good enough one.

One of my more recent ones is the stones for an overseas client,these four pink tourmalines are cut in a barion cushion and one of my favorite designs.Barion's are deep to enhance color but very bright because of the extra kite shaped facets at radically different angles on the pavilion of the gem.Specs are one pendant stone at 9mm,one ring stone at 7mm and two earring gems at 5mm each.These are already set and I will post a pic if and when I get an image.Look out for another project pic soon.
