Help with info on Faceting Sapphire Overseas
« on: June 16, 2019, 04:39:37 PM »

 Hello members,

 I would like some guidance regarding having my small
 collection  of Sapphires Faceted.
 I recall a link about southern India but can't seem to find it in
 search.
 The collection is less than 20 grams but good coloured
 gems mostly solid blues and a couple of parties.
 Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 
 Regards
 JC

There are quite a few members here who have used Lamberts in Thailand.  That is probably the most popular option used over the years - they can be very slow though.  There is another company in Sri Lanka that I have heard used with good reports - details just escape me at the moment.  I have not heard any feedback from India - would proceed with caution there.

cheers

Here's another one in China.

Not a recommendation, just to let you know they are there.
