gemstone shapes and cuts

On this page we have listed and illustrated the many shapes and cuts of gemstones to assist you in identifying the cuts we use in our jewelry.  There are many other fancy cuts that have come into popularity in the past few years.  We do not have examples of these cuts as we are currently not featuring any in our jewelry.  We hope to be able to add these cuts at a later date, and will include them on this educational page when that time comes.
