Step cut gemstone feature trapezoid shaped or rectangular facets in concentric rows, but there are many modified variations of this faceting style available today. In fact, there are many different ways to describe gemstone shapes and cuts, and there is almost always more than one "correct" way to describe a specific gemstone shape and cut-style.
A single gemstone may be described as being 'round-faceted', 'round brilliant-cut', 'round diamond-cut', or even just simply 'round cut'; although some of these terms are more descriptive than others, none would be considered incorrect when used to describe the said gem.
In the colored gem industry, descriptive terms are used loosely because there is no universally recognized official terminology when it comes to all of the fancy cuts and modified cuts available today. In the past, "trilliant-cut" could only be used to describe "brilliant-cut" triangular gemstones (hence the name "tri"-"lliant"), but now the term is accepted by most when used to describe any triangular gemstone including step cuts, cabochons and plain cuts.

Pleased to finally find nice amethyst cabochon that I can afford. I am designing pendant for friend in silver.
When buying high-price items - like gems - it can be scary you are being scammed. GemSelect has no hidden strings. I tested this by purchasing very small, but they have won me over. Their prices are upfront and the quality is as expected. They also package their gems well, and ship incredibly quickly. Their website is easy to use, and they have quick customer service.

I was looking for very specific loose gems for my collection and some loose gems to add to a piece of jewelry I want to have made and Gem Select had everything I was looking for and the selection and price ranges were outstanding. I will absolutely purchase from this vendor again and often. I am so very pleased with the items I received.
I checked reviews throughout the internet and was thoroughly impressed with the positive experiences of others. I’m constantly worried about purchasing fake stones. The many satisfied customers have given me confidence in what I’m purchasing.
