Lapidary Services we offer.


Our Faceting Services

We do faceting from rough gem materials as well as repairs to faceted gemstones. We can usually duplicate gems which have been broken and need to be re-made, depending on availability of materials. Our shop is able to re-polish the crowns and pavilions of faceted colored stones and make them look like new again.


Our Cabochon Cutting

We repolish both cabochons and faceted gems to make them look like new again as well as recutting of gems to close windows and enhance their brilliance.



Top Polish Gemstone in Ring

We are usually able to remove scratches or re-polish the tops of cabochon gemstones that are mounted in a ring. We are also able to re-polish the table of faceted gemstones that are mounted in a ring as long as there are no obstructions above the level of the table of the stone.


Special Gemstone Cuts

We do special gem cutting to your specifications to accommodate your designs. You design it and we cut it the way you want it cut. There are few lapidary shops left which do custom gem cutting.



Our Gemstone Carving Services

We do most kinds of gemstone carving. Only a very few shops will do gem carving. We can also re-sculpture carvings to make them look like they were never broken.



Our Gemstone Drilling Service

If you need holes drilled in gemstone materials for diamonds to accept a tube with a diamond or to put a chain through the stone, we can do that.



Restorations of Antique items made from Gem Materials

We are able to restore antique one of a kind pieces that many gem cutting shops will not attempt. We have been able to restore intricate gem carvings originally produced by the famous shop of Cartier.



Laser Images on Onyx

We are able to put permanent white printed images on black Onyx with laser technology. See our link on the upper left of this page to see examples of what this art form looks like.



Stars and Cat's Eyes

We have also developed a reputation over the years for being experts in cutting all types of star gem stones. From star sapphires to star ruby and star diopside to star quartz. We can re-shape stars which may not have been properly shaped when they were originally cut. This usually improves the star.

We cut many forms of cats eyes, from cat's eye chrysoberyl to cat's eye tourmaline.


Repairing Fantasy Cut Gemstones

We repair Munsteiner cuts and other forms of fantasy cuts. Fantasy cuts are a unique type of gem cutting which requires unique lapidary techniques to work on them.



Gemstone Watch Dials

Over the years we have made watch dials for a variety of watches such as Rolex, Patek Philippe, Piaget and others. We have made them from materials such as Lapis, Black Onyx, Mother of Pearl, Tiger Eye, and Dinosaur bone.



Gemstone Materials

We have a large stock of the materials commonly used in our projects, so we can get right to work on most projects without having to order the required materials. We are a full service lapidary shop!



Repolishing GIA Refractometers

After a refractometer has been used for a number of years the soft glass of the hemicylinder can get scratched and pitted which makes it very difficult to get a good reading. New refractometers are very expensive. We are able to re-polish the top surface of the glass and make them like new again..
