Buff Top Gemstones
The 'buff top' gemstone cut is another style of mixed cutting for gemstones. Mixed-cut gemstones are, well, self-explanatory - they're usually cut with the combined features of a 'faceted' gem as well as a 'plain-cut' gemstone. Most mixed-cut stones exhibit facets on the upper half of the stone, while the lower half is cut with a smooth or rounded surface, such as the 'rose cut' (one of the most popular styles of mixed cut). The rose-cut is often used on black gemstones like black spinel, tourmaline or melanite. The buff-top cut is another popular mixed cut which is basically the opposite of a rose cut. Buff-top gemstones feature a smooth (typically domed) upper half and a faceted bottom half. The strategically-placed facets allow light to reflect from the pavilion in very interesting ways. This style of cutting is typically reserved for transparent or translucent materials.

Size and Weight

Gems are always measured in Millimeter (mm)

Dimensions are given as;
length x width x depth,
except for round stones which are;
diameter x depth

Select gems by size, not by weight!
Gem varieties vary in density, so carat weight is not a good indication of size

Note: 1ct = 0.2g
