New Collection of Custom Cut Gemstones

Posted by on March 21, 2011 at 13:33 pm

After many long hours in the gemstone shop, I have cut dozens of roughs into fine gemstones. In fact, I also spent a few days photographing the gems so they can be added to our site.

There is now a wide selection of freshly cut gemstones available here at Gems by James. Dozens of gems including citrines, aquamarines, garnets, amethysts and others are all on the site. For those interested, you can see the entire selection in our gemstone and jewelry shop. Below please find a few examples and a few of my personal favorites:


Earrings With Custom Cut Gemstones

Posted by on February 4, 2010 at 09:51 am

The holiday season was a busy time. And, we really enjoyed cutting the gemstones and making the hand-crafted jewelry. Dozens of rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets were made for family, friends and our new customers!

Producing high-quality gemstones is a passion and we appreciate all of the positive feedback – again, thanks everyone!

Now that we’re getting ready for Valentine’s and Mother’s Day we added finished earrings to the mix.  Amethyst and Aquamarine from Brazil (round cut gemstones), Citrine from Uruguay (marquise cut) and Garnet from Nigeria (round cut gemstone).

Here’s a few pictures of the new earrings we recently added to our shop:

If there is a particular gemstone that you would like in a set or earrings, please contact us here and we can make it for you. Act fast if you’re looking for delivery before Valentine’s Day. We’re also working on several gemstone bracelets and rings – stay tuned!

Amethyst is the birthstone for February: Amethyst is the gemstone believed by ancient Greeks and Romans to ward off intoxication. The gemstone has been associated with many myths, legends, religions, and various cultures.  It was used in the Middle Ages to symbolize royalty. Amethyst is purple quartz as well as a blend of violet and red.

Historically, the finest amethyst was found in Russia but today Brazil is the primary source of amethyst although fine material can be found elsewhere, such as in Zambia.
