SETTINGS AND STONE CUTTING
The baguette cut impresses with its simple elegance and clear lines. The stepped facets make the cut gemstone appear almost transparent and glass-like.
The brilliant cut is an extremely popular cut for diamonds. This cut gives the diamond a perfectly round shape. 32 facets are seen in the crown, 24 in the base and one facet serves as the table facet. Due to its refraction and shape, the brilliant is a coveted gemstone that can easily be incorporated into a variety of pieces of jewelry.
The briolette cut is a pear shaped cut shape with small triangular facets perfect for jewelry pendants.
The cabochon cut shape is round to oval. The cut stone has a convex curved surface and a flat underside.
The marquise cut is a faceted cut with an oval shape reminiscent of a ship's hull. Another name for this type of cut is the "navette cut".
Stones are cut in the noble pearl cut when they are perfectly round or slightly rounded.
The princess cut is a sleek and sophisticated cut with an almost square outline. The princess cut creates a unique sparkle with very good use of the natural diamond material and allows inclusions and flaws to become relatively inconspicuous.
The triangular shape of the precious or gemstone makes the trillion cut so special.
The shape of this cut is reminiscent of a drop.
Crossed, i.e. scissor-like, facets are the characteristic feature of the scissor cut. It also owes its name to this cut.
Since emeralds are usually very brittle, this type of cut is ideal. It is a stepped end product with blunt corners.
The Xilion cut is the biconical faceting. This cut is the classic among high-quality Swarovski® crystals. The elaborate faceting, combined with the high quality of the material, leads to an inspiring light reflection.
The claw setting is ideal for emphasizing a stone. The stone is clamped in "claws" from all sides, the prong setting is therefore also referred to as a claw setting.
With the mantle setting, depending on the type of design, the stone is set in a mantle-like precious metal embellishment.
The setting of a piece of jewelry is called pavé setting when a large number of small gemstones of the same shape are held in or on the piece of jewelry using this method.
The tension setting was originally developed for platinum rings and was intended to hold the diamond firmly to the material only through the force of the tension. This creates the impression that the stone is "floating" in the ring.
The bezel setting frames the gemstone with a thin layer of silver
