  • Been going to pigeon forge for years and this is my favorite place. I've had so many gems cut and the experience is amazing. The workers are so nice and helpful. The $500 bucket is definitely worth it. Also, if you can afford it, get at least one of your gems cut. No complaints!
  • A good value! We purchased the 50 dollar deal and enjoyed sifting through everything. Nice setup and friendly staff.
