Cut of the stone
Firstly we talked about the cut of the stone. Now finding a good quality bright green tourmaline with this cut is not impossible to find but can be tricky so we decided that custom cutting was the way forward. We custom cut the green tourmaline from a larger cushion stone to create the look. We combined the chequer board facetted cut on top but with a more square proportioned shape rather than oval.
The lapidaries squared up the proportions and then facetted the top of the stone. This creating a square cushion shape with a facetted top! Donna felt a straight sided square stone would be a little harsh so decided that she would like to have the stone with softened corners. The initial stone was 1.72cts and ended up at 1.05ct. After being cut gemstone it is difficult. We searched for a green tourmaline of the right colour that could be cut to shape. The twist ring is simple in style holds the tourmaline for a modern design.
A diamond is a beauty
A diamond's beauty, rarity and price depend on the interplay on all the 4 C's cut, clarity, carat and color. The other big trend is the revival of antique cut diamonds such as the cushion cut. Side stone options include these 7 shapes as well as baguette and trillion.
Its purity is the perfect symbol of a new beginning. It is believed that the first diamonds were discovered nearly 3000 years ago in India. They were considered valuable because of their ability to refract light and were used as either decoration or as talismans - for protection and warding against evil. Generally speaking there are 7 principle diamond shapes for Jewelry - round, marquise, emerald, princess, pear, oval and heart. The strongest trend in Jewelry design is diamond set in white metal particularly platinum.
