Secrets of Gem-Cutting with Justin Prim
An Afternoon with the “Gentleman Lapidary” in Harlem
Yesterday, a group of curious gem wanderlusts got to meet the gentleman lapidary, Justin Prim. In town from Bangkok on a yearlong trip around the world, Justin and his wife Victoria (also a lapidary) gave us a peek into their gem cutting secrets. From a lesson in play of light, to different diamond cuts, to tips for sourcing rough in Tucson, we were amazed by their wisdom and passion. Thank you so much to @justinkprim @victoriaraynaud for visiting us, and to our darling hostess @joanna.y.gong for welcoming us into her bright, beautiful apartment. Sundays are for the most special of jewelry friendships.
