These cabs are from the Kingman mine in Arizona, purchased at the 2017 Fall Tucson Gem Show. The teardrop/pear shaped stones would make great pendants, earrings, rings or whatever you wish to use them for. They are 3.2mm thick, so they are sturdy enough for most anything. Almost everything I get from Kingman is treated, and these are in that grouping. The color looks good, with very slight variation. The color is a more a light blue, which is loved by many. They have an excellent cut and polish and very little matrix. You'll enjoy working with them, as they are definitely cut so you can set the stone with a 3/32 bezel and show off the entire surface of the stone. Each stone weighs around 1.6-1.8 carats. For a year or two these guys have switched from selling Chinese cut stones to USA cut stones. Now that the majority of their stones are cut here, the prices have increased. The new price on these stones is a reflection of that change. If you wish to purchase more stones than on the dropdown list, please contact me. Remember, 5% of the price of the sale goes to charity every month!
I normally ship within 24 hours of your order. It is easiest for me to send jewelry items through the post office...The same applies for most of my work, since it is seldom so heavy as to merit going to UPS or FED-EX. I share the cost of sending jewelry items with my customer. If it is a large item or supplies, I charge what I think it will cost to ship. Combining items always saves on cost of shipping, as we all know.
Paypal or Direct Checkout are the best payment methods for myself and my customer. They both accept credit cards and make it possible for me to send your item immediately. If you need to send a check or money order, I will send the item as soon as it is cleared. If you need to cancel an order, do it immediately, please!

Additional return information
If the item arrives damaged or it doesn't arrive...please let me know and we will get your purchase to you. I will have sent it, rest assured. If you feel I misrepresented an item, we will work it out or get you a refund. Customized pieces will be dealt with on a piece by piece basis, but if a name is on it a refund is doubtful!
I take a break from custom work from time to time, so I can spend full time in creative mode. I assure you I will contact you if you happen to order during that period of time. Usually it is planned during a "lull". Any other questions will be answered by yours truly if you care to contact me! :)
