[Source] Triangle Sapphires


#1

Does anyone have a source for small triangle sapphires like those
used as side stones in antique rings?

Hi Richard;

I don’t have the address handy, but I can get it for you. There’s a
guy who advertises in just about all the trade magazines that he
supplies replacement stones for antique rings, little triangles,
scissor cut baquettes, etc… He’s out of Hollywood, Florida, so you
can’t miss his tiny ad in the back of the mags. If you don’t find
him, I’m out of town for a week, but email me and I’ll look it up for
you when I get back.

Not off the top of my head, but I recall seeing ads in the back
pages of JCK magazine for breakouts from antique rings. Might also
try the AGTA or JCK Sourcebooks. Or you could have some baguettes
recut. I have had Penn Gems recut stones for me in the past (stones I
have purchased from them).

David,

I think the company is Nation-Wide Jewelry, PO Box 6884, Hollywood,
FL, 33021, 1-800-327-0259. I had one of their flyers on file. I have
used them in the past for those odd shaped stones for period and
Masonic type jewelry.

Hope this helps.

Stuller has them in their gemstone catalog. They are available in a
number of qualities and range from 3 - 7.5 mm.
