Our purpose is to offer you exclusive access to owning custom cut exotic gemstones formed in the shape you desire based on historic exacting specifications. Since 1946 gems cut in the office we share with the venerable lapidary Reginald C. Miller, Inc. routinely break auction house records and are collected by elite collectors, dealers and jewelers worldwide. Cushion Gem's commitment is to provide you with a singular secure immersive online experience enabling you to follow your gem's progress from initial selection to first cut to final polish.
We are building a secure online portal for you to choose from an experts selection of promising gem material that can be further improved and re-shaped into your preferred shape while you watch your selection being cut and formed from start to finish. From the Rockefeller Sapphire to the Alan Caplan Ruby, we've shaped - and we continue to shape - gemstone history and now for the first time select gems will be signed as we document their cutting progress just for you on the Cushion Gem website.
