[Looking4] Boston area gem carver


#1

Hi All,

Does anyone know a gem carver in or not far from Boston to carve a
15 carat blue topaz. A piece that I want to match was produced in
Italy some time ago. Anyone there?

thank you

Hi Evelina,

Derek Levin is a noted gem carver and is in Hartland Vermont. Email
me privately for his phone number. He’s also a member of this list
so may very well respond in person.
