Some of my best finds comes from readers like you!  Lorraine Gonda is the latest one. She  recently raved about the well rated UniversalJewellery. It is run by Mohammed Sufi, a gemstone carver, lapidarist and jewelry designer based in Jaipur, India. 

She was very taken with his work and confessed she bought several cabochons especially the carved natural emeralds.  She said in an email to me, " Everything I bought from him has been outstanding and very well priced. His carved emerald leaves are just beautiful and are carved on both sides."

I can see why Lorraine is such a fan as he does have some awesome cabochons at very reasonable prices.  I was especially taken with his carved labradorites and that brilliant pietersite is gorgeous. Great for wire wrapping, macrame and beaded bezel work.

He also has some sterling silver gemstone designs for those who like their cabochons finished and ready to incorporate into jewelry designs.  

As the items are shipped from India, a longer shipping time is to be expected.  Lorraine is right, "I would advise early ordering for holidays since the post does take time if anyone is interested. Of course he does offer a quicker shipping option if one doesn't mind paying a higher shipping fee."  Sooner rather than later is good advice for all shoppers.
