Our Products and Services

     Gary's Gems  is a custom  jewelry manufacturer specializing in faceted stones, especially blue topaz, the State Gemstone of Texas, expertly faceted in the LONE STAR CUT.   All stones are cut by our master faceter, Gary Worden, who has been cutting stones for 36 years.
      Brazilian topaz is almost always available, in shades from colorless to medium to "London" blue. The Lone Star Cut shows best in the light to medium colors; very dark material obscures the star.   Sizes are available from 7mm (about 2ct) to 30mm (50+ct) in topaz, with the most popular sizes for rings and pendants being  8mm to 12 mm (3 to 10ct) (See photographs on gemstones page).  Special faceting by request.    Native Texas  topaz from Mason County, Texas  is rarely available in VERY limited quantities--to cut from 7 up to 12mm stones, at $100/ct finished weight.  Email for current availability.   NOTE: In a flawless stone there is NO current test that can differentiate between Texas topaz and topaz from other countries .   The  Mason topaz I have is received directly from people who have actually dug it up at various ranches in Mason County, Texas.
