For all our jeweler friends

  • Got a head's up from my oldest daughter, Tanya Garment, who thought there would probably be at least a couple jewelry artisans interested in getting gemstones at wholesale prices. Daughters are most helpful in spreading the word
  •  so without further ado - she forwarded the following from another person's daughter:  
  • Hi Parents, My father is visiting NYC from his new home in India, where he is in the gem business. He is a man obsessed with these beautiful stones. He knows every detail, and they are each hand-picked by him from his personal suppliers who have been in the gem-cutting business for generations. If anyone out there wants to create a special piece of jewelry for a loved one this holiday season, come by and see what he has. His prices are far better than anything you'd find in a store since he has no overhead or advertising costs.
  • Details are below. 
  • ********************************


Glowing Gems - direct from the gemstone cutting workshops of Jaipur, INDIA 
Ruby, sapphire, blue topaz, aquamarine, tanzanite, peridot, citrine and more!
Loose or set, top quality at exceptional prices. 

Date: Sunday, December 11, from 1 to 5 PM.
At : Cabrini Blvd and 186 street
RSVP to get exact address

To view the collection, email Susan at:
