All, On of the dealers I consign stones to just got robbed two hours
north of Savannah, Georgia. They had just finished the International
Jewelers Organization Show and were on the road. They stopped for a
burger and came back to their vehicle to find just the cases with the
stones and jewelry missing from their vehicle. Obviously they were
cased by someone in attendance at the show. They were in the
restaurant less than 15 minutes. Stolen were 30 concaved stones of
mine, several 5+ carat Ceylon gem blue sapphires, several 5+ carat
gem spessartine garnets, lots of custom jewelry, and the personal
jewelry collection of the dealer. My concaves are very easy to spot,
some of the stones are concaved on the crown, girdle, and pavilion.
The concaves stolen were aqua’s, citrines, garnets, amethyst,
sapphires, and peridots. We are in the process of reporting the
theft to the FBI. Local police were of very little help and quite
rude to the dealers. If you see any of these stones report it to the
FBI task force.
