#DailyJewel - Your Daily Dose of Sparkle for Jan. 4th

Jean-Noel Soni of Top Notch Faceting 
recently posted this great look back at his favorite... 

Tourmalines of 2013

My favorite Tourmalines from 2013. From Left to Right:
Top Row: Nigeria, 4.78ct • Namibia, 2.67ct • Nigeria, 4.17ct
Middle Row: Afghanistan, 2.65ct • Kenya, 3.09ct • Nigeria, 5.07ct
Bottom Row: Nigeria, 4.10ct • Brazil, 2.33ct • USA, 2.91ct

All are One-of-a-kind designs, faceted by Jean-Noel Soni. 
• Award winning, custom ParaTraditional gemstone faceting by Jean-Noel Soni • 
Created without the aid of computers • Located in San Francisco CA •

When Jean-Noel says custom it takes on a new meaning...
each gem he cuts is unique to itself.
 He starts with a standard shape/design...
and lets the individual gem determine where he goes from there...
