Copyright©2012 Pigeon Forge Gem Mine
Buy a bucket of dirt and mine it for the stones, making sure you keep all the bigger
stones no matter what they look like
After you are finished mining you take you stones inside to be identified by one
of our trained Assayers. They will let you know which one can be cut and how big
of a gem you can get out of it.
Next stop for the stone is the lapidary for cutting and polishing by a professional
Next the stone goes to one of our jewelers for professional mounting into the setting
And the final step will be to pick up the finished ring.(Or have it shipped to you
if you will not be in town when it’s finished.
