[Looking for] Special cut Blue Saphires


#1

Greetings, first step on my search is the Orchid group.

I am looking for Saphires cut to go in the points of a 5 pointed
star. I have seen many a masonic ring with various color stones in
the star shape in my years in the industry, but never saw a source
for them. I have a customer that wants an all blue star pendant. I am
looking for 4-5mm “flat” to “point” sized stones.

Thanks in advance,
David

Hi David; Try this source. I got this from an ad in a trade
magazine. They advertise replacement stones for antique filligree
mountings.

As for the pointed stones (synthetics, mostly) that are in Masonic
jewelry, try Stuller Settings.
