dsPremier: How we create one-of-a-kind pieces
Stones in the dsPremier collection are exclusively designed, cut, and produced by Dakota Stones. Each are cut from unique and premium rough materials to exacting specifications to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Many strands in the dsPremier collection are very limited. We currently work with a lapidary artist that cuts most of the limited batch cuts in our dsPremier line.
When we find an interesting piece of material to work with we then need to partner with a skilled lapidary source. A lapidarist uses gemstone cutting, grinding, and polishing techniques to create decorative items such as cabochons, engraved gems, and faceted designs. Our new supplier cuts for some of the most well known names in the world of fashion jewelry, cutting beads with the craftsmanship of a season diamond lapidary and delivers unique pieces of art. These pieces are seldom, if ever, seen on the market.
