All That Glitters Gemstones Appearing in Books/Magazines - Many are Currently Available for Purchase!

Prices Subject to Change at Any Time....

Many of our gemstones have appeared in publications such as Gems and Gemology Magazine by GIA, Jewelers Circular Keystone (JCK), Cedar Wings Magazine (published as an in-flight magazine in the Middle East where all photos of gemstones/rough in the article came from the All That Glitters' Inventory!), and many more. Our gemstones have appeared in two editions of "Gemstones - Understanding, Identifying and Buying". There are collectors out there who desire to collect gemstones that have been published and seen throughout the world. Many people enjoy sharing their personal gemstone treasures with others, whether it is an unset gemstone in a collection or set into a piece of fine jewelry. It is a thrill for most to open a book or magazine and show a photograph of the very gemstone that they are showing to someone! Though All That Glitters gemstones are very often unique and rare due to size, color, clarity, polish and cutting, a few are even more special because they can be found in international publications. They are very much like a work of fine art which is known to belong to a museum - in this case, they may not only be found in some museums, but perhaps in your home or the home perhaps next door to you!

Many of the prices below are more in line with a retail price vs. a gemstone that has been published. A retail estimate is difficult to determine on many of All That Glitters gemstones, because they are typically very unique due to size, cutting, clarity, color, etc. As one famous jewelery stated before - All That Glitters gemstones are "so exclusive and one of a kind, that our customers would not be able to "price shop". Visiting another business and finding a similar gemstone is impossible." Pricing has been based on the normal wholesale with an added percentage due to the publication of the photo. Overall, the prices are very far below where one would expect them to be, and may change at any time.

It is not the norm for a business to have so many gemstones published in trade magazines and books, but this is indeed the business of All That Glitters - dealing in Fine Faceted Unique Colored Gemstones!

Concave Faceted 34.58ct Half Moon Shaped Ametrine
concave faceted ametrine
Concave Faceted 34.58ct Half Moon Shaped Ametrine. Rough came directly from the only mine producing this material and was hand-selected for our specialty cuts. Faceted by our award winning concave cutter in this wonderful complicated and time-consuming style. The cutter requires about 5 days or more from the time he begins to work the rough to completion of the final gemstone. The process is not typically completed over a 5 day period, but usually a month, as the artist takes a break and works on other material as this particular cutting style is labor intensive, requires total concentration and quite a bit of pressure to obtain a final high polish. Issues and unforseen problems can occur at any time, and therefore, more time, energy and effort extends the timeframe before a gemstone may be finished. (ajml-16b-01d) Contact us for pricing.

The Legend of Boliviante(Ametrine)

One says WOW when viewing this Fancy Blended Ametrine!
gorgeous one-of-a-kind oval ametrine
Click on the above photo for a larger image.
A 45.60ct Concave Cut Blended Ametrine in a uniquely shaped oval, showing the Amethyst and Citrine as separate areas within the gemstone, but also causing some blending which adds interest and beauty. This was photographed with a ring light which allows proper even lighting to see the color patterns/cutting throughout the gem. Our connections to the mine that produces this material, allows us to obtain the unique pieces of rough we require to produce such beautiful treasures. The rough is personally selected for All That Glitters. We do anticipate (or perhaps better said - we 'hope') beautiful gemstones will result from our rough by our cutter, but sometimes the custom design the cutter has chosen and the one-of-a-kind rough we supply him, turns into something far beyond what was originally expected, as is the case of this piece as well as a custom created fancy fan shape (incorporating grooving, faceting and even optical dishes in the design shown below). So unique and beautiful are these, that we have been comtemplating entering them into the ATGA Cutting Edge Competition when that is held in the future. The negatives to entering these gemstones into this contest include waiting for the contest to begin, the high entrance fees ($300, not to mention the cost of shipping and insuring the gems in full) and the fact that if the judges agree about the uniqueness of the cutting/shape/color, etc. the gemstones are not returned to the owner for quite a long time as they go on tour to be admired by others in the trade. We do have a price in mind per carat for these pieces, and we feel due to the size, the uniquenes, the rarity of the starting material as well as other pluses, that our price is a very good buy and far less the retail price we have seen for smaller Ametrines with less interesting cuts and where the color zoning is more of the norm of what one sees in 'everyday' Ametrine. Feel free to email us to inquire about the price. Measures approx: 26.6x19.2x164.mm (ajml-16-01f) Contact us for pricing.
We decided to post a photo of this piece on Facebook, and below are the accolades within the first hour or so...we posted in a group that knows colored gemstones, cutting, unique and beautiful gems:
