Double-sided gemstones are unique in that they are not cut in the traditional way. Cabochons are cut with flat bottoms and domed tops, while faceted gems typically feature a pavilion that comes to a point or culet line of some sort. Double-side gemstones, sometimes described as full-rounded, are perfect for those looking for a gemstone that can be worn and shown on both sides; in example, pendant stones often get twisted and flipped around when worn around the next, but with a double-side gem, this is no problem since both sides of the gem are cut in the same way. Double-sided gems are often given a checkboard cut or they may be given a smooth cabochon dome featured on both sides of the gem.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
