Stars and Cat's Eyes

I have always loved Star Rubies, Star Sapphires, and Cat's Eye gems since the first time I saw them as a teenager. I wanted to know how the stars and cat's eyes were formed. Then, when I when to work in a gem cutting shop, over 25 years ago, one of my first jobs was to cut and re-cut stars. And I loved it and got very good at it quickly. And I still love working on Stars and Cat's Eyes.

Stars and Cat's Eyes are usually cut overseas and are usually cut for weight retention rather than with quality cutting standards. As such, the Star or Cat's Eye is often off center or not properly alligned. We re-cut many of them to correctly orient them and align them.

Polishing Stars and Cat's Eyes in the ring: We can repolish them while they are still in the ring. See the details in on our Top-Polish page.

See examples below of Star Sapphires, Star Rubies, and Cat's Eyes
we have worked on.
