As a certified gemmologist and trained geologist, Peter understands stones deeper than most goldsmiths. That knowledge is applied to each piece to find the best stone and cut for you. Peter’s experience and knowledge can even explain the origin of your stone, like how it formed, where it's from, and what gives it its colour or sparkle.
Cut by Hand
Here, you will find a collection of Peter’s stones cut by his hand.
Peter offers lapidary services for custom pieces for clients and other goldsmiths needing a specific stone. Unfortunately, the only stone Peter cannot cut at the moment are diamonds due to their extreme hardness; thus, they require special equipment. However, stay tuned, for as we expand our tools, we can begin to expand our services.
