Announcing New Unique Parti Gems™ Cabochons

Parti GemsJust want to let everyone know we have now opened a new website and store for a new line of premium unique and beautiful cabochons we are calling Parti Gems.

We are now looking for jewellery makers to use our gems and are eagerly looking forward to see what they create.
