Tanzanite Cutting Company Expands Operations

Nairobi, Kenya - Renowned tanzanite cutters Lapigems Gem Company have expanded their cutting facilities in Nairobi to include fantasy cuts and laser inscription.


Lapigems Gem Company which has been cutting Tanzanite for over 30 years, has recently expanded its scope of operations to include a wider range of cuts, shapes and the ability to use laser inscription. 

Lapigems’ online collection of investment grade Tanzanites has long been regarded as one of the finest available due to the highly selected nature of the Tanzanite included in the collection. “This new facility enables the company to expand its reach further into more specialized niches and to appeal to more collectors and Tanzanite coinnoisseurs” explains company Managing Director Antony Zagoritis who is a GIA Graduate Gemologist. The collection can be viewed online at

The facility uses state of the art gem cutting equipment and Lapigems chief cutter has been cutting for the company for nearly 30 years. “The skills have been deeply embedded in the company for a long time and we felt the need to upgrade the facilities available to ensure these skills were given the best opportunity to shine” explains Nicky Thomas, the group marketing manager.

Lapigems plans to further invest in more advanced laboratory equipment to keep ahead of the curve of gem treatments and synthetics in the marketplace and to allow for full laser inscription of stones.

The company is thus well positioned to provide continued world class services to both the trade and end consumers and specialized niche markets.
