Added a few in bold above. Just a thought though - should we really separate out precision cutters from gem dealers? Wouldn't it be better to put them into one category i.e. Gem Dealers/Lapidarists? The reason I'm saying this is that some on the precision list also have non-precision cut gems.

Chrono - have added Erica Grace for you.
I added Peter Torraca to the precision gem cutters area.

Suggested additions:

Custom settings:
Steven Kirsch http://www.timelessluxury.net/
Quest Fine Jewelry http://questfinejewelers.com/
Hunt Country Jewelers http://huntcountry.com/

Gem Dealers:
Tsavorite USA Inc. http://www.tsavorite.com/

Other sites:
Pearlman's http://www.pearlmansjewelers.com/
Hunt Country also has loose colored gemstone they cut- don't know if anyone on the boards has purchased one or not, but they are available and several PS'ers have used them for custom settings recently.

www.tsavorite.com is run by Bruce Bridges- are we trying to include names with companies?

This is a great idea, thank you everyone!

I think an updated list of vendors with store name, vendor name, and website link would be extremely helpful. I don't think it's necessary to put vendors into categories, but any vendor who has a history of issues with refunds should not make the list.
It's precisely for this reason that the list isn't a good idea. One person could have marvelous customer service and another with the same vendor could have an opposite experience - so who's right?

A list that simply has vendors with links to their websites should be sufficient (or the original one updated so old ones removed) which is probably preferable.

I don't believe we should call them "respected" or "trusted". It should simply be a list of places people could try.
So let's just make a 'colored stones dealer's' list, and people can vette the experiences of others for themselves.

Oh boy, there's lots of doubling of names which will need to be cleaned up.

I can't believe I'd forgotten to include Josh for emeralds.

Natural Sapphire Company? Justin, this is one that we have wanted removed from the list for ages as there are VERY FEW positive experiences and in fact there are threads that are positively steering people away!

LD,
That's actually an ebay store name for ebay dealer gemsthailand, not the real NSC. It's confusing because their ebay store name is the same as NSC (who also has an ebay store too). Justin had a good experience with gemsthailand, so I think it should be added to the list.

Crikey - if I were Gemsthailand then I'd be changing my ebay store name pronto then! I'll add it to the list with a note to make sure people know they're not affiliated to NSC!!! Thanks for the heads up TL.

This is an amazing compilation. Thank you all who had input.
Can it be pinned so it is easier to find for reference in the coloured stone forum?

I had suggested David Dawson of Rough 2 Refined http://rough2refinedgemstones.com/ I know several people have been very pleased with his work. I purchased a stone and returned it (due to color preference on my part), but it was a lovely cut gem and he was very easy and professional to deal with.....

This is a great list and thanks to all.

Two things though...the link for http://www.bkkgemstones.com (mainly Sapphires but some other colored gemstones and jewelry) does not resolve i.e. the site is gone? Please check sites if you are recommending and haven't used them recently.

Secondly can I suggest that just the list itself is copied and made into a sticky (with a link to this thread for suggested inclusions) so that we can add suggestions to this thread and keep the list itself clean of comments? It then makes it a simple task for Ella - if she sees this thread pop up - to check that the suggestion isn't already on the list. It will also stop unnecessary repetition of the list here so that it becomes the "suggested additions" list.

Fabulous resource though!

I have added Lady disdain's website, she does lovely work and is one of our own, and also Michael E of the Gemshoppe for the same reasons.
eta: steve wallner/westview gems
eta: spelling of brad payne

I am also adding NSC. There are PSers who have had good, yes even very good experiences with them. Many of us have other opinions based on their prices and some practices in how they present themselves and their goods on the web, but that does not alter the experiences of those who have worked with them and been happy, or make their opinions less valid.

again eta: John Dyer and RDG in New Zealand, totally amazing goldsmithing

I think it's a really good idea, Uppy. The pinned vendor list has nearly 60 websites, some not even functional. I don't know anyone who has the time or desire to manually search through every single one of those entries - I certainly don't, though I did try once. I got to the Gs and gave up.
I made it all the way through. I'm such a nerd. :bigsmile:

But yes I think this new list is even better organized and even more helpful. Thank you. :))
