Gemstone Designs - Index

When it comes to gemstone designs, there are literally thousands and thousands out there for us gemcutters to choose from. Designs are often 'optimised' for a particular type of stone, such as quartz or topaz, so as to bring out the best performance, sparkle and brilliance in the final cut gem. It's all about light!

Selecting a design usually comes down to a combination of what shape will give the best yield from the rough stone and personal taste... some designs are nicer then others and become favorites. There are also classics that have stood the test of time, such as the 'Standard Round Brilliant' and the 'Princess' cut.

At the end of the day, I believe that you should choose the gem that is most pleasing to your eye, be it the design, the colour, or whatever. Everyone has different tastes and sees different things in each stone and for every person there is a stone.

The designs that follow are a small selection of my favourites. If you are looking for something in particular, let me know as I have many more designs available. I can even create and cut your own unique design!
