The feature gem is an Oregon Sunstone in a peachy copper color in a precision faceted kite shape measuring 10.7 x 8.7 x 4.9 mm weighing 1.85 carat. It has VS eye clean clarity excluding a healthy dose of desirable copper shiller. This unique gemstone is untreated and was mined at the Misha 2 mine in Oregon, USA, a family run operation owned by a friend of mine. With a hardness of 6.5-7 Oregon Sunstone is suitable in many types of jewelry.
These accents are a bright green Tsavorite Garnets, untreated natural gems mined in Kenya. These gems are 4x4x4 mm well faceted trillions weighing 1.34 carat total with eye clean and slightly included clarity. Garnet is a 7 on Moh’s scale plus is tough and suitable for wear in many jewelry items.
Garnet is the birthstone for January.
We started this project by melting down fine silver and pure copper to create an ingot of 93% silver alloy. Consequentially our alloys are a little on the rich side of .925 Sterling. Copper alone is the remaining 7%. We do not add base metal in our alloy so there is less chance for any allergic reaction.
Weights and Measures
This bracelet measures about 8.5 inches around, an oval measuring 65 x 55 mm and the weight is 24.1 grams.
Thailand’s Gem Markets
Being a gemologist in Thailand makes providing you with the right gemstones a snap. Furthermore, the gem markets here are nothing short of amazing! We shop in four different gem districts across the country and the variety is world class. Additionally, a precision gem cutter is working for our operation. Of course, we also source fine gemstone rough with our worldwide network of contacts in the mining business.
Since I love to travel and shop for gemstones, I do act as a buyer’s guide to the gem markets for any visitor that would like assistance. Often I can meet you at a gem market or even pick you up at the airport to get our adventure started.
Custom cut gemstones
An essential part of our service is custom gemstone cutting. You may supply rough stones for us to have precision faceted or cabbed into the shapes that you desire. In addition, many gemstones that are already native cut will be improved in clarity and light return by a new precision cut.
Custom orders on gemstone cutting are normally ready in just two to three weeks. Message me with details of your gemstone requirements. I will provide the address along with special instructions on shipping stones to us.
