Well-Rounded Gemstones

By: Jeffrey M. Bertman Graduate GemologistWhen it comes to the boldcolored gemstone pieces that have become so popular in recent years, there has been a significant shift to cabochonstyle stones. The term “cabochon,” which is derived from the French word for head (“caboche”), refers to a dome-like convexity that is the result of shaping and polishing instead of faceting. For the most part, opaque gemstones such as turquoise, lapis, and a host of others lend themselves to the rounded, organic, oval shapes that work so well in the pendants, ring stones, and bracelet jewelry that is currently fashionable. The fact that the cabochon cut has a flat bottom also provides a practical dividend in that it solidly affixes to settings that resist loosening.
