I need a stone cut for a bezel type college ring.

Natural red garnet.

Approximate size of finished stone:
Oval
10 x 12 mm (approximately)
Faceted pavillion
Smooth domed top (like a cabochon)

Like the stone in these pictures:

Jon,

I need a stone cut for a bezel type college ring. Natural red
garnet. Approximate size of finished stone: Oval, 10 x 12 mm
(approximately), Faceted pavillion with smooth domed top (like a
cabochon) 

Since I did not see any of the faceters answer your request…
there are two extremely talented faceter’s on Orchid who perform work
for the trade only. They are:

Wayne Emery, near Des Moines Iowa, you can reach him heRe:

They are both reliable and dependable and I trust them implicitly.

Good luck!

Old Pueblo Lapidary Club (OPLC) here in Tucson has a website, I’m
told, and someone over there may be interested in doing this kind of
work.

I agree with Roger. I didn’t answer because I don’t do smooth tops
only faceted. I’m swamped right now so I wouldn’t be able to fill
the order very quickly even if I did cut smooth tops.

Either Wayne or Doug could do a great job I’m sure (if they aren’t
swamped as well).
