The Disclaimer: Anyone submitting material for faceting, cabbing, or repair/restoration need to understand that there are no
guarantees by Mainley Gems that the results will be successful, or that finished goods from rough material will turn out as you may have
envisioned them. By their nature, lapidary materials, due to imperfections in the crystal structure (e.g., flaws, inclusions,
internal stresses or fillers) may be subject to damage during the lapidary processes.
Any material sent for any type of lapidary service will be at the risk of the customer. Mainely Gems or its employees shall not be
held liable for any damages so incurred. If any damages should occur, the customer will be notified and the material will be returned
or new arrangements will be decided upon. Although damage of this type occasionally happens, some materials are more prone to the
above mentioned damage. We will discuss with you any issues of this nature prior to commencing any work.
Be aware that restorative (re-polish, repair, re-cut) work can never add material to a stone and will always involve removing material. A
loss of weight (sometimes significant weight) will occur, and the stone may no longer fit into the setting it came out of. If these
are critical issues, you want to make sure that we are aware of them. You may want to send the setting along with the stone for us to
evaluate the viability of the repair job. Feel free to send an e-mail with any questions
you have about restorative work and the lapidary processes.
The natural variability of crystal structures can lead to unexpected results or consequences, and not every stone survives the rigors of the
cutting and polishing processes. Nobody can guarantee the behavior of a natural crystal or material. We can only do our skilled best. We
do not guarantee the integrity of any stone, and our liability shall be limited to the cost labor in the event of any unexpected problems
due to the issues discussed above. After notification of job completion, payment must be received within 30 days or we will
consider the stones to be abandoned. After 30 days, we reserve the right to sell the goods for the price of the cutting fees, and there
will not be replacement or reimbursement for the rough.
Jewelers, designers, jewelry craftsmen, benchworkers and jewelry industry tradespeople and professionals, please contact us for wholesale
price quotes on stones. You must provide us with a valid resale license or sales tax certificate to buy wholesale.
Contact us to receive your FREE estimate. Give us a description of the service or product required and
any other pertinent information, such as approximate size, type and amount of material, type of setting, and how it will be used.
Sending a picture in ".jpg" or ".gif" format would be very useful as well.
