Ronald Talhelm has been cutting exquisite cabochons from exotic and rare materials since 1995. Every designer cabochon is cut in such a manner as to exhibit the very best of the material. He painstakingly chooses rough from the source. He then slabs, grinds and finely polishes each stone.
Ron specializes in unusual materials, including drusy chrysocolla, cobalto calcite, chrysoprase, fire agate, covellite, drusy and many other hard to find stones. Ron is known for his large statement cabs; each to be used in signature pieces by bold creative designers.
Working with a cabochon created by Ron is a pleasure that one must experience to truly understand the excellent attention to detail he gives to every stone he touches.
