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.

Colors and qualities of gems are very well represented online. Easy to use website. Great selections!
This was my second purchase from GemSelect and definitely won’t be my last! They have a very wide variety of gems and you can always find what you are looking for with ease and the prices are very good.
finally bought the last rock to complete my ring idea; needed another white one after giving the big diamond to my daughter. a diamond that size is out of my retired-school-teacher budget, so i bought a white zircon. went back to the same place that i got my loose sapphire-- great selection, good prices, good delivery!
