History of Gemstones Cabochons

July 2, 2012
Cabochon Gemstones

In the lengthy history of Gemstone Cabochons, faceted gems are a recent creativity. Gemstones were not cut with multiple faces in a geometrical pattern till the invention of the horizontal cutting wheel in the Fifteenth century. Prior to that, gems were principally cut as cabochons, a smooth domed shape with a flat base.

At one time all gemstones were formed as cabochons. But Gemstone Cabochons maintain their popularity for 1 or 2 reasons. In the case of supposed outstanding gems like those that display a star or cat’s eye, the gem will only show the fascinating optical effect when cut as a cabochon.

In some other cases, some gemstones are cut as cabochons because they are opaque or see though instead of transparent. Faceting this material doesn’t produce superb results. You may also see lower grade material in gemstones like sapphire, ruby, quartz and garnet cut as cabs.

From time to time purchasers who are keen on cabochons ask us for a high quality sapphire or ruby cut en cabochon. These are tough to find because facet-grade material is almost always faceted as an alternative.

A high quality transparent sapphire will sell for a heftier price if faceted. The rationale is just one of economics. Only lower grade material, known as cabbing rough in the trade, will be cut as cabochons. For in these gemstones the finest stones will be cabochons.

Selection of gemstone cabochons in all shapes, sizes, and gems and designer are available at Wire Sculpture Jewelry Cabochon Gemstones
