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.

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.
