Welcome to Alternatives Lapidary!

Here you will find a showcase of the work of Philip Lagas-Rivera, a gem cutter and custom jeweler based in Raleigh, North Carolina.

In the Gemstone Gallery, you will find a portfolio of my custom gem cutting.

In the Custom Jewelery section, you will find photos of some of my custom fine jewelry work.

In the Store, you will find a listing of stones and jewelry pieces I currently have for sale.
