[Source] Large cabochons


#1

Hi,

I’m a metalsmith who doesn’t often make jewelry, so I’m not up on
the best sources for Usually Rio Grande suffices, but now
I’m looking for something they don’t have: an extra-large cabochon,
60 x 80 mm or even larger. I’m only in the very early design stage
right now, so the field is pretty wide open. My only criteria are:
bright color - blue, red, purple, turquoise; could be a synthetic gem
or glass, but not plastic or resin; Translucency preferred. Any
direction I can get to good reputable sources will be much
appreciated.

Sounds like you will need to find someone who will cut you a custom
cabochon. I usually cut my own stones for the jewelry that I make.
the largest cab that I have done is 30 by 40. I am not volunteering
to do a cab; but there must be someone who does cutting on contract.
