Emerald cab


#1

I am looking for a cabbed emerald- it doesn’t need to be a high
grade in a 6x8ish or so size,(doesn’t need to be highly polished or
traditionally cut) I will be setting it in white gold bezel on
sterling silver. Please…if anyone has any idea where I can find
this special stone for a special person- thanks,

Cindy

Cindy, Try Kho International, Ltd: (770)491-7150. Mr. Kho does his
own cutting and faceting. (Decatur, GA) I think I did see what you
need at AGTA in Tucson last year. Give him a call. He’s a very
nice man. With that said, he probably won’t remember this customer,
but I always go back to see him and make a few purchases.

Good luck!

Cindy, I have three genuine emerald cabochons which might be what
you want:

approx.   7mm x 5mm x 3mm high                .82 carat at $75 per carat.
     "       6mm x 5mm x 3 1/2mm high          .85 carat at $75 per 

carat.
" 8+mm x 5 1/2mm x 41/3mm high 1.81 carat at 225 per carat.

all are fairly dark, intense green, and quite clear of inclusions
(although not “eye-clean”) cab emeralds are NEVER eye clean…if the
material is THAT clean, it is cut into faceted gems. I also have
several smaller cabs, some matched. David Barzilay, Lord of the Rings

I apologize to all Orchidians for posting this to the WHOLE LIST. I
had thought I was sending it to Cindy only. I do NOT want to
unnecessarily ‘commercialize’ the list. David Barzilay, Lord of the
