How to select a perfect cabochon?
Here are a few tips on how to select the perfect cabochon stone by Gems Diamonds By Shikha:
Flat Bottom: If you want us to use your cabochon stone with a bezel, please ensure you have a flat bottom so that it does not rock from side to side.
Check the sides: You should check the sides of the cabochon stone. You should observe whether the sides are up and down in a straight way or they are at an angle toward the top of the stone.
Angle of the sides: While investigating the angle of the sides, make sure the same angle will prevail all around a cabochon stone that is well-cut. Try holding the stone at your eye level and you will be able to check the angles around it.
Examine the store front: To ensure that your cabochon stone doesn’t damage, make sure that all the angles of the stone don’t reflect any sort of light. It should have an even finish through the stone.
