This Blog really is more like the confessions of a gemstone addict, 'cos I just can't stop buying :-) You may remember I got an unexpected early shipment from Paul back in July, telling myself that I'd spend less at the overseas gem show, but I spent double my budget there ..... oh well, I thought, I don't need to spend so much with Paul on his annual November run ........... but yes, I just spent another massive amount. I just can't say no to beautiful Gems, and Paul is a special case ! Why ? First because he's a fellow addict of beautiful stones. Secondly because he goes the extra furlong to get the best price possible, spending months overseas selecting and haggling, sometimes visiting the mines and cutting the stones himself. When I go to the overseas gem shows I see the same quality stones, unset, at a higher cost than Paul's which are already set ! Finally Paul's settings are simple classics, exceptionally well made in his own workshop overseas with workers he's taught himself. Check out his collection here ~ Paul's Precious Gemstones
These will take ages to upload, so tomorrow I'll check through everything so that if you want a preview you can just ask at the desk . . . . get first pick and a 10 % Discount !
There's still a small mountain from my last trip to go through too.
I can't hurry the uploads. These pieces demand good photos and descriptions.
For those who can't make it into the Shop, there's a list of stones below ~ if there's something you are interested in, leave a comment here or drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'll prioritise that upload.
