A quick word on my photographic skills or lack thereof.
I'm a cutter, not a photographer, I try to make the photos as accurate as possible but if I've got 2 shots and one looks a little better than what I really see and one looks a little worse, then I opt for the lesser of the 2. If you buy a cut or rough gemstone from us, I'd rather have you pleasantly surprised that it looks better than the photo.

Most pics are taken with side lighting from a 60 watt, GE Reveal light bulb positioned about 24 inches away, or , on the rare occaisions when we have it, sunlight.
