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.
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.
