You know how much craftmanship goes into your jewelry, but have you thought about how much goes into the gemstones you use for your designs?



Come meet renown lapidarist Denton Anderson, GG of Denver Gem Cutting as he gives WJA Colorado an exclusive tour of his studio.  Denton will guide us through his process of choosing a piece of rough, orienting for cutting, choosing the best faceting plan and the actual process of cutting a gemstone.  He will also cover what he takes into consideration when it comes to a recut.  Come find out what it takes to turn a rock into a gem!



Whether it's repairing a broken stone, cutting for custom inlay or creating a bespoke creation from the rough, Denton does it all.  Denton is an active GIA Alumni serving on the board of the local GIA Mile High Alumni Chapter.  Denton has been cutting gemstones for over 40 years, working with over 400 stores across the country.  Bring your questions for this exclusive access to a gemstone cutting master.
