Being a gemologist, living in Thailand and having a precision gem cutter work for me gives me many opportunities to provide the right gemstones for you. The gem markets here are nothing short of amazing, I shop in four different gem districts across the country and the variety is world class. Adding that to my network of contacts in the mining business around the world creates a very large base from which to source fine gemstones at very affordable prices.
When you need gemstones for a specific project you may purchase the feature stone AND the exact number of accent stones from our shop here. Before we get a chance to ship them you may send us a message to request we make you a personal listing for a custom order piece of jewelry using those gems. Browse my gemstones category to see over 1000 gems ready to go, yours may be there waiting! Feel free to let me know what stones you have in mind as there is a good chance that I either have them in stock, can find them in a gem market or will have them custom cut.
Do you already own gemstones that you would like to use in jewelry? You may also send them to me to have us create your own LEE. Please note that I am happy to work with your personal stones but I do not have any insurance to protect them, thus the stones will be at your risk only. When we use a stone from my store I back the stone for the purchase price, however, I do not guarantee or insure a stone that I did not sell. That said, it is not common that one breaks or is damaged in setting.
We am happy to make you a custom piece of jewelry with Sterling 925 silver or 18K yellow gold. It will be completely hand made, hand crafted, and hand fabricated. Not a casting, no glue and no factory made parts, we even draw wire and roll our own sheets. This style of workmanship is all but lost in today’s high tech world due to the high skill level required and the lengthy amount of time it consumes. This old school method that I studied in Thailand is known to be the finest technique in jewelry production in the world and adds greatly to the value and the durability of the jewelry. The queue for a custom ordered piece to be ready for shipping is usually 30 to 60 days and your piece will enter the queue as soon as you make your payment and we have the stones.
Select your own style by browsing my online selection catalog with over 500 of my designs or I also have a partial catalog you may use now right here on ebay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Design-Selection-Catalog-Get-a-quote-on-a-custom-order-of-real-handmade-jewelry-/311355889917I will create a listing right here just for you so you can still enjoy the comfort of being on ebay while having a custom piece of jewelry truly handmade. As an alternative to my catalog, you may send me an item number of a piece you see, a picture or even a picture of a sketch you drew, however, I do not like to draw or use CAD but you are welcome to do so.
Perhaps I have already made a piece that is just right for you. Please browse my entire selection of over a thousand jewelry items in stock and ready for immediate shipping.
I try to provide you a complete view of each piece with one still picture and about a 40 second video. They are each taken with high magnification and show details similar to viewing with a 10-20X loupe. My children usually take the videos and the pictures are not photo-shopped. They are not perfect quality but are sufficient to understand the level of craftsmanship involved in the lapidary work and the quality of the gem material. This also ensures that the gems will look even more beautiful in real life.
I would like to thank you for looking at my online stores. This is not an auction, you have no time spent waiting for an item to end and there is no bidding so less stress. You may simply purchase your items immediately and we will ship them right out, usually every other day is a post office day.
Here is a shot of my wife May and I on an early morning, ready for the rough stone market at the northern border of Thailand.
Customer service is the main thing that May and I am selling on ebay. It is of the utmost importance to us that you enjoy your shopping experience with us. Please let us know whenever we can be handy.
You may use Pay Pal as well as a wide range of other options. Be sure to contact me with any questions, I am happy to help you.
We normally ship immediately, within the next 1 or 2 days after payment, on all in stock items.It’s your choice on the shipping method, Registered or Express. You may select on your invoice. Both are dependable, insured and have tracking. Registered Air is free to every country and usually takes 2 to 6 weeks for delivery. Express Mail Service cost $32 and usually delivers in 2-5 business days. You may give me a telephone number to list on the package when using Express. Please note that any custom duty or other tax added by a third party such as your country’s government is your responsibility only.
All of my items are returnable, even custom orders. I will ask questions though, because I aim to improve on anything that my buyers don’t like so it is important for me to know any reason. I will give you a full refund as long as ebay gives me one. A lot of folks do not realize that commissions are taken from a sellers’ account even before the payment for the item has been completed. This means that I will return money at the same rate as I receive it, 85% at the time of return delivery and inspection then the other 15% after ebay returns the final value fees. I would prefer to give you a refund of 110% of the purchase price immediately upon return in the form of merchandise credit or exchange. When I ship an item I guarantee the delivery and as the shipper when returning an item, it is important to remember that you are responsible for the delivery. It is important to pack the return carefully and use a carrier that you trust.
Shop in comfort and buy with confidence. I am an American gemologist and a silver and gold smith dividing my time with the great USA and the beautiful kingdom of Thailand. I run a small shop where we hand hammer solid pieces that are heirloom quality. We do not cast anything, use any machine made components or ever use any glue in this completely hand made jewelry. Each of my gemstones is hand selected and is warranted to be accurately identified and all known treatments are disclosed. We are a family run business striving to serve you in the best possible ways.
