Mining-Cutting-Hand Crafting to the very highest standard
This is a one of our supplier’s gemstone mines. Every morning before mining can begin natural seepage from the wet soil has to be pumped out.
|Panning for smaller stones
This takes about four hours during which time the pumped water is panned for smaller stones.
|Stones are cut to the appropriate shape
Once the stones are collected the best are selected and cut to the appropriate shape.
|A polishing wheel for shaping cabochon stones
With the more unusual shapes such as hearts & teardrops it can take some time to select the right cutting. Moonstones are polished into shape using these basic tools.
|Our goldsmiths are fine craftsmen
Once all the gemstones are cut and polished, the jewellery can be made.
|Careful inspection before being dispatched
They set each stone in place using hand and eye skills, each piece being carefully inspected before dispatch.
