Cem Cutting for Maximum Profit

While some cut names refer to the finished gem’s face-up shape, others refer to the shape and arrangement of the facets. Gem cutting styles are another name for these cuts. Brilliant, step and mixed are the three most fundamental cutting styles. A “round brilliant diamond,” for example, has a round form yet is cut brilliant. Faceters can mix and match these styles to create a wide range of gem designs.

The Three Most Common Gem Cutting Techniques

Brilliant Cut

Brilliant Cut

Facets in brilliant cuts are triangular and kite-shaped and radiate outward from the gem’s center. The brilliant-cut, as its name suggests, produces the highest scintillation of any cut.

Step Cut

Step Cut

Rectangular facets that ascend the crown and descend the pavilion in steps make up step cuts. Emerald and baguette cuts are examples of step cuts. These are popular because they highlight the color and clarity of the stone while also producing a slight sparkle.

Mixed Cuts

 

The step cut and dazzling cut styles are combined in mixed cuts. The crown has dazzling facets, while the pavilion has step facets or vice versa. Cabbing and faceting techniques may be used in mixed cuts.
