About Checkerboard Gems

Checkerboard-cut colored gemstones have diamond-shaped facets, often on the crown of the gemstone. The facets reflect light and increase the scintillation of the stone and surface luster. Some colored gemstones are often given a checkerboard cut, such as black spinel, melanite, black tourmaline, prehnite, smoky quartz, aquamarine, citrine and ametrine. Checkerboard-cut gemstones have several shapes, such as round checkerboard-cut gems, oval checkerboard-cut gems, heart-shaped checkerboard-cut gems and cushion-shaped checkerboard-cut gems.

From this page, you can use our filters at the top or on the left-hand side to find checkerboard-cut gems by shape, size, color and so on. For example, select 'round' to see all of our round checkerboard-cut stones. You can also filter by single, pairs and lots by using the check boxes at the top. This will help you to find the perfect checkerboard-cut gemstones for your requirements.

When I could not find a good matched pair, Customer Service (Thomas Dahlberg) responded with a selection of beautiful singles, which I also needed, and I found just the right stone for my ring. This means he actually read my email! So unusual these days. So very welcome.

Really disappointed with the limited amount of options that you offer for 3mm-4mm round faceted stones....There were NO Blue Topaz or Amethysts.

The sight has a great selection of stones at a variety of price points. It was easy for me to find affordable stones for gem identification practice as well as some fun pieces for my collection. Very happy with GemSelect!

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
