I attempt to accurately represent and describe cut stones and rough as to appearance, size, origin and fully
disclose any known treatments in its description. Because you view the images on a different monitor with
different settings, color is particularly fickle to represent, but I do my best.

Updated some prices - I know customers don't like to see this, but the price of cut stones in general have doubled in the last 5 years. Some stones will
go up considerably. I'll give you customers the opportunity to buy at the old prices until February 8, 2014. After that the new prices will go into effect.

Note: It's been a long time since I posted any new stones to the web site, but I have been very busy.  I've been cutting special requests.  So many
special requests that I at one time had a 6 stone backlog built up.  And I cut the most gorgeous tsavorite for myself (the first stone I'v ever kept for
myself).  It looks like I'll have very little new production for several more months because I accepted a full time job that runs until Christmas.  Don't
give up on me though.  If you have a special piece that you need, I'll try to fulfill your requests: it may just take a bit longer than usual.

My name is Dan Starr.  I've been cutting and polishing gemstones for
several years now, and this website is where I show off my "extra" stones,
which would be very few if my wife had her way!  I grew up in La Habra,
California and graduated from UCLA.  I hope no one holds that against me.

My Guarantee is simple.  If you buy a stone from me and are not satisfied
with your purchase for any reason, then return it to me within two weeks
undamaged and unaltered and I will refund your money.  You can't get a
better guarantee!  Prior to returning an item you must e-mail me so that I
know it's coming.
