Most cabochons are known to have a smooth, curved or domed top and a flat cut bottom, and are available in a variety of shapes, including round, oval or cushion shapes, but there are also some very interesting variations of the classic cabochon that we've become to know very well. Among the rarer cabochons styles -- and one of the most desirable -- is the 'sugarloaf' cabochon. Sugarloaf cabochons are conically shaped and come to more of a rounded point at the top of usually smoothed domed surface, almost like a mountain or a pyramid. Some of the most fancy designer jewelry lines feature gems with this unique and interesting cut, so sugarloaf cabochons are not just for commercial jewelry, but also fine jewelry too.

This site always has beautiful stones to choose from and you will get the actual gem that is pictured. The shipping is fast and reasonably priced.
I love GemSelect, personally. I browse their site almost daily to see all the new stones available. Their selection is pretty amazing. The quality isn't always the highest and the cut of the stones isn't always perfect. But for the price, and if you look hard enough, you can find a real gem, so to speak.
I would recommend to a friend because of the quality of the products purchased. The gemstone quality is very high and the gems purchased are beautiful. Any friends interested in having custom jewelry made would definitely be recommended to the site. Also, every shipment is handled with care and I am very pleased with that.
