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.
As Always never disappointed in any gemstone I purchase from this site. I have never had a problem. Thank-You Gemselect for offering such a comprehensive variety . I will continue to order from this site.
Gem select is the most trustworthy web site for gems. What I see in the picture is exactly what I get. Size is indicated by carat weight, and not the picture size, as they are trying to give an up close view of the gem I am hoping to buy. It was so easy to find the stones I was looking for at a price I could afford.
