Lou Cutting

About Gemhunters

We first arrived on the gem fields as most people do to dig for sapphires and zircons during the cool winter days. Armed with some picks and shovels and sieves we dug on the public fossicking areas. We hired some tubs for water and a willoughby to wash the sapphire bearing dirt. We found a couple of nice parti sapphires (multi-colored) and some blue sapphires.

After that we decided to live on the fields and work a sapphire lease of our own. Lou has been cutting gemstones for many years now and is very good. With a preference for unusual high quality cuts the sapphires we have for sale are unique with many facets. Lou became so good at cutting gemstones he is now teaching students.

When we are not in Australia, we travel overseas to purchase direct from other miners, gem rough that we can not get in Australia. Sometimes we base ourselves in countries to source the best quality available – this can take months.

We rely on the postal system which is always very good, we have all stock with us ready to post and every parcel gets to its destination within reasonable time.

– EMS International Courier with tracking number 3-5 days delivery to Australia / United Sates and Worldwide

– Airmail for lesser value items takes only 2 weeks if parcel is not needed urgently

We find Tourmaline in every colour, Peridot , Beautiful Zircons that are different from our Australian ones, also the more valuable special Garnets to name a few. This gem rough can be purchased through our website at wholesale prices. Well below the world market value. As we prefer large pieces of rough that is clean to cut we have cut some extraordinary gemstones ourselves. Only the best quality is selected to sell on the website to avoid any disappointment.

Because Lou is a professional cutter he has found the best faceting machine here in Sapphire and uses the best laps to cut with. All the gems are cut with more then the usual amount of facets to give the best quality in a gemstone.

We are quite often overseas searching for gemstone rough to purchase or finding quality gold rings that we set with our own gemstones. One-of-a-kind stones with the most magnificent sparkle. Unique and unusual rings with the type of gemstone that can not be found in any chain store shop. We take great pride in helping select the best gemstones for engagement rings, we can now offer to have the ring made at excellent prices to suit any budget.

Our gold jewelry is made from solid heavy gold to last a life time.

We keep our prices well below their true value as we do all the work ourselves. Many customers return to us each year glowing with approval as their purchases have been so far below the normal costs and valueations of our products are tenfold original purchase price.

We sell a lot of our cut gemstones, gem rough and gold jewelry through this website.

I will email photos of items from every angle until the perfect ring or gemstone is found.
