have scoured the globe for over 35 years to bring the best gemstones
to the customer. Handcrafting them from our location in
beautiful Idaho, or from Panama. We do not cut corners and use
completely raw materials to finished products. And then polish it up
with some Tripoli and Rouge to give it that nice shine. Many
Jeweler's and designers will glue cabs in the settings or add other
things like sawdust even; which some refer to as Jeweler's Sawdust.
Simply put it's quite common with vintage turquoise pieces and it's
just normal sawdust. Some will also use things like old
phonograph records or other materials to level it. And we won't ever
do that. If we can't fit the stone in the setting right, then we will
build one that it works for. Every stone is unique and that is what
we focus on.
We respect the gemstones and if we
can't make the setting fit, then we scrap it and start again. You can
be sure this gemstone is not coming out without excessive force and
does not wiggle or is loose in the setting. It may take more time for
this, and a bit of precision perhaps; but we want the housing to fit
the stone. Before setting it, we completely polish the inside. The
customer may not ever see behind the stone into the setting but in
respect for the stones, we don't set them in a dirty house. They are
natural gemstones and like people; they are one-of-kind. We don't use
other substances with them to get them to fit right. You can be sure
of this. And then we stamp it with our stamp. Indicating
that not only did our company make it; but also the purity of the
metals used. And we hope you will enjoy it!
This stone closely resembles high-value Persian Turquoise. And it is
undoubtedly, one of the nicest Tibean stones we have seen. It is quite
stunning for the colors.

stone is Considered soft in comparison to many stones;
therefore, we do not suggest you using tumblers for polishing nor do
we suggest using other methods. Light Steam or otherwise may not hurt
it. If you need to Polish it up we have included a polishing
cloth. Otherwise use a mild dish detergent that does not contain
bleaches or other dying agents. Blue Dawn is recommended; and a soft
toothbrush with warm to hot water. And polish it up. If you
must use Tarnish Removers, do not get it on the stone. It could
create problems. Due to the softness of these stones, these
stones are not suggested for everyday use. Generally stones
rated 7 or below on Moh's Hardness are not a good idea for everyday
use. Even so, keep it protected from scratching and when
should be noted, we have tumble polished a similar stone that has
been set, and there did not seem to be damage to it. Yet it was only
a light-short tumble and a longer more aggressive one may cause
damage. Be on the safe side and avoid it.
