About 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.

I had a limited budget and wanted a star ruby. GemSelect offered small, but pretty stones at a very reasonable price. I've always been satisfied with my GemSelect purchases, although there are also eBay vendors I use for less expensive gems. Their selection of more expensive stones, like rubies, is very limited, however.

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
