Good afternoon everybody. My partner and I run a small business in Australia and have been looking for recommendations for a trustworthy business that can cut and facet natural/rough stones?

We have natural Moldavite stones from the Czech Republic and we would like to get jewellery made from them. The material is expensive so we have been worried about finding a good business especially since there are many fakes on the market. My biggest worry is that some of our material will be taken or substituted with fake material. Ideally we would like to have 100+ small faceted stones cut in each order.

I have little knowledge in the area but have found places like Lambert's Gems and Navneet Gems in Thailand that accept rough stones. I've heard of people getting stones sent to India for cutting although that's about it.

Does anyone have experience with these business or have recommendations for bulk gem cutting/faceting businesses? Additionally, any tips would be welcomed.

Thank you!

Lamberts are the preferred for stones not worth big $$... Never herd of the other mob...
If i had anything of value, it wouldn't be going overseas, or with-out me watching over their shoulder to get cut...

I have used Lamberts several times over the years and although they take several months (6mths last time) to get your stones back, they seem to do a decent Job for their price....

I just have to throw in the mix that Lamberts maybe better today but in the past we send several parcels of tourmaline and one parcel never came home. They never tried to find the material or fix the situation. They had no explanation for the color difference and why the blue material was all internally ruined when they were nice clean rods sent. Heart breaking and never sent out another stone to them.https://www.youtube.com/shorts/VBiMwQ3ZbNo
