I promised some time ago that I was going to increase my stock of 3mm rose cuts. It’s not easy to get these little chaps cut, as cutting prices everywhere are soaring (due to a shortage of skilled cutters and the increase of labour costs in countries like India and China – but that’s another story for another day…). However, I am now pleased to present citrine, rhodolite garnet, almandite garnet, Brazilian amethyst and peridot to my collection, all at $1.60 per stone. Very pretty, with the nice kite-shaped faceting characteristic of my stones.These are in addition to my existing stock of 3mm rose cuts – black diamond, blue and pink sapphire, ruby and London Blue Topaz. Coming soon I have new stocks of the AAA grade rainbow moonstone which proved so popular as well as white topaz in this size and cut.

Joopy Gems Newsletter April 2013

For any of you who don’t get my newsletter and are interested, here it is, for a round-up of new stock and a reminder about my Spring 15% discount offer.



April 2013


15% Spring Discount

This April and May at Joopy Gems, I am offering a sparkling 15% discount on all products, until the end of May. A fantastic opportunity to stock up for your upcoming collections! Discount code SPRING15 to enter at checkout. Redeem and claim by 31st May, one discount per customer.


3mm Rose Cut Cabochons

I promised you more of these and here they are: 3mm rosecuts in almandite garnet, amethyst, rhodolite garnet, peridot, citrine, all at $1.60 per stone, and black diamond at $14 per stone. Great for all of you working with small sizes. These are the same great cut as my other rose-cuts with the ‘flower’ (kite-shaped) faceting rather than the triangular which so many of you seem to prefer. Coming soon are white topaz in this size.

Rainbow Moonstone AAA grade

I’m really pleased to be offering some spectacularly beautiful rainbow moonstone 4mm rose cuts. This is AAA grade; fantastic clarity with superb multi-coloured flash, priced at $4 per stone. As it becomes harder to get hold of good quality standard grade material, I am gradually replacing smaller sizes with this high grade material.

Labradorite 4mm Rose Cut Round

This is always such a popular size and cut; I can never seem to keep enough of it in stock! I have here beautiful quality high grade labradorite in a choice of either blue/aqua flash or green/gold flash. The labradorescence is really superb on these stones and the background material pale and translucent. $1.70 per stone.

Last but not least…!

Also new in stock I have white moonstone 6mm and 8mm cabochons, 10mm rose cut AAA grade rose quartz, and 6mm Brazilian amethyst cabochons. Back in stock I have prehnite 8mm rose cuts and milky aquamarine 6mm rose cuts. To be listed in the next few days, I have peach moonstone 4mm rose cuts and white topaz honeycomb faceted ovals 15x10mm and teardrops 10x8mm.
