Doing the Polka with the Polki

My gem dealer came to visit me a little while ago with the most amazing stones that she found on her buying trip in India. The cuts that are coming out are so beautiful and the possibilities are endless. The only problem is stopping myself from buying up all her stock.

I am finding that the South African market, though very trendy and forward thinking, still loves the classic in colours and designs. That is why these new stone cuts that are making their way to our shores are very exciting. The gem cutters are finding new whys to liven up the favorites and in turn giving the designers something inspirational to work with.
