Starting the year off with some great new gemstones!

I can't believe it's been so long since I posted on the blog,time just seems to get away from us in the hustle and bustle of day to day living.

Since the last post there have been many stones cut and sold and I hope to provide a varied choice of some top gemstones this year.

Good quality rough gems are harder than ever to acquire and prices are still high and climbing especially in mainstream staples such as tourmaline's which are prohibitively expensive in places like Nigeria at present.
This makes it very challenging for the American cutter to offer cut goods at reasonable prices to the consumer but at Clear Cut Gems we have not increased our prices from last year and plan to keep it that way for 2016 while still offering top quality goods.

As always if you're looking for something specific please contact us and we'll do our best to find it and cut it for you.

The following are a couple of the stones I've added to inventory in January so far and I have some large quality Nigerian bi color tourmaline's that still are begging to be cut,I managed to secure them at very reasonable prices compared to what is being charged now and will pass these savings on to our clients.

A very fine mint green tourmaline cut in a classic Asscher,this stone is quite clean except for a tiny veil off to the side and a few spots which do not affect the beauty of this remarkable stone..Weight is 2.5ct dimensions 8.1mm and clarity is vs,price $1500.00

This beauty is a flawless Nigerian tourmaline which was cut from a pink stone with a blue fringe along the edges,unfortunately I couldn't keep any of the blue in the finished piece but there are blue highlights in the flashes of pink from this stone which is unusual for a bubblegum pink tourmaline like this.
This one weighs in at 2.5ct and  9.75x8.2mm so a nice sized gem for a ring or pendant!

Offered at only $850.00 from Clear Cut Gems website on the link below.
