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.

I have bought several stones and am very happy with the price points, selection and speed of delivery. Sometimes the quality is not quite what I expected but given the prices, I am overall satisfied.
I have been ordering from GemSelect for at least 6 years. Every single order was perfect - every item was as advertized, in perfect condition and arrived well within the specified time frame. I have recommended them to several friends.
