Why buy custom-cut stones? Custom gemcutters use specialized equipment designed for accuracy. This precision in cutting at precise angles equates with quality optical performance though this often results in less yield from the stone and takes considerably longer to cut. Custom cut gems may take 3 to 5 hours to cut, with some fancy cuts taking much longer! Hence the higher price; though well worth it, considering the superior quality and the years of satisfaction and beauty they offer.

See the difference for yourself! All gems are backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee,
and may be returned unaltered within 15 days for a full refund.
