The exquisite gems showcased in this collection were hand-picked from around the world and sent to expert craftsmen in Thailand, where they are specially cut by master cutters & their sponsored apprentices.
The Ethiopian opals, renowned for their fiery glow, were cut from the volcanic slopes of the Great African Rift. Sri Lankan sapphires, Madagascar sphene and stunning multi-colored garnets and tourmaline were only a few of the exhibit’s highlights. Thanks to the great folks at Artinian Gems for a wonderful opportunity, and everyone who made the show such a great event!
