A gem buyer for many years, I am now retired. I raise money for animal sanctuaries via the web site https://compassionart.ca  
Here I will be offering gems from my own collection, and arranging the production of mounts in sterling, gold or platinum at VERY competitive rates. All profits from the compassionart site go to sanctuaries. Some…possibly all…. profits from this site will also go to sanctuaries, but I reserve the right to retain some if I find the need as I get older. For more about me, please see the compassionart site. 
I have also operated a store on Etsy for over 5 years, and maintain a five star rating….. Compassionart on Etsy
