Comments : Here is an excellent example of a Rose de France Amethyst that has been cut in my Sandalphonic Elements design. This is the second time I've cut this design and given the number of facets and the days it took to cut, it will be a while before I venture in and try to cut it again. It was a technically very challenging design to cut and is one that has alot of symbolic and metaphysical symbolism specifically relating to time. (If you're interested in this gem then let me know and I'll explain it all to you. :-) The design is in the high dome style and I love working with high domes because of the surface real estate that you have to work with, it allows for alot of artistic expression. It is a big stone so I'm not sure how you would set it, it's probably one for the collector. But given all that, if you want a great example of what I do, then this is a good stone that will illustrate alot.

Rose de France Amethyst, Portuguese Double Rose, Brazil, #840
Zoom

Stone : Rose de France Amethyst
Cut By : Doug Menadue, 2016
Item : #840
Design : Portuguese Double Rose - 225 Facets (Doug Menadue)
Origin : Brazil
Treatments : None
Weight : 36.9 Carats
Clarity : Eye Clean
Size : 19.27x19.27x19.46mm
Price : SOLD

Comments : Here is a beautiful example of the gemcutters art. This is a superb Brazilian Rose de France amethyst that I faceted in my take on the classic Portuguese Cut. Because it was a large stone I added quite a number of extra facets with the end result being 225 facets all up. That's quite alot of facets to put onto a stone and the end result is spectacular. When you look at the gem and you "swirl" it around it looks like a school of bright silvery fish swimming around and around inside the gem, it's quite mesmerizing. When you do this out in the sunlight, my goodness, what an effect! This is a gem that I definitely consider an Objet d'art, it is a gem that captures the full beauty of the Rose de France amethyst, with its soft delicate purple hue and lovely water clear clarity.

This is a very fine stone and one that would look fabulous in any collection. It would also make an interesting piece of jewellery, perhaps a creative and talented jewellery designer could create a unique, one-of-a-kind pendant that would truly do this Rose de France gem justice. Very highly recommended.

The colour is quite soft even for Rose de France.

Comments : Truly a magnificent, elegant rose de france amethyst gem. It is big and beautiful, the colours soft and lovely, changing in the light from white to pink to purple and lilac and many more as well. This rose de france amethyst is beautiful material and the gems cut are all stunners. This gem is destined to become a family heirloom, a gift from a daughter to her mother.

Quite a fine gemstone.

Rose de France Amethyst, Acorn, #18

Stone : Rose de France Amethyst
Cut By : Doug Menadue, 2008
Item : #18
Design : Acorn (Doug Menadue)
Origin : Brazil
Treatments : None
Weight : 20.71 carats
Clarity : Very Slightly Included
Size : 16mm X 14.5mm
Price : SOLD

Comments : This large stone is a pale variety of amethyst called "Rose De France" and has a soft, beautiful colour. It is suitable for any jewelry setting but due to its size I'd say it was more of a collectors stone. However, I think it would make a very interesting pendant if it was set in some sort of "bird cage". There is a very small feather veil inclusion near the crown. This stone has a beautiful, watery transparency which is common to this pale type of amethyst. The gem is very brilliant and is like an amazing swirl of light.
