Most cabochons are known to have a smooth, curved or domed top and a flat cut bottom, and are available in a variety of shapes, including round, oval or cushion shapes, but there are also some very interesting variations of the classic cabochon that we've become to know very well. Among the rarer cabochons styles -- and one of the most desirable -- is the 'sugarloaf' cabochon. Sugarloaf cabochons are conically shaped and come to more of a rounded point at the top of usually smoothed domed surface, almost like a mountain or a pyramid. Some of the most fancy designer jewelry lines feature gems with this unique and interesting cut, so sugarloaf cabochons are not just for commercial jewelry, but also fine jewelry too.

A great selection and size choice of the gems I have been looking for. Very happy with the purchase.
It's pretty great having a whole lot of different gemstones to choose from. When doing crafts and jewelry making, it's great to have all kinds of options, and it's amazing how much cheaper it is to just purchase un-set gemstones and make the setting yourself, as opposed to buying fully-made jewelry already. It's also extra special since you made it yourself.
