The Cabochon

A cabochon, cabouchon is a gemstone which has been rubbed and polished into a simple rounded shape, as opposed to a facetted cut. Up until the 1400s, gem cutters were constrained to cabochon style cuts and odd asymmetrically faceted cuts due to the limited technology at hand. The resulting shape has a convex top with a flat or concave back. The term cabochon is used to describe any gemstone cut shape that is not facetted.Today, cutting a stone, cabochon is usually applicable to opaque gems, although transparent semi-precious gemstones are also cut as cabochons. Variants of the cabochon include the cameo and intaglio cuts.Within these pages you will find Our Cabochons are cut to our customer needs in free form, concave, convex and calabrated sizes sets and suites in all of the cutting we offer In cabochon Cut Gems Gemstone

Rulers sealed documents with there jewel-encrusted seals. Such treasures can now be admired at many museums and treasure-valts. Today gems are worn not so much to demonstrate wealth, but rather jewelry is bough increasingly for pleasure, in appreciation of it's beauty. Certainly, also today, when purchasing a gemstone, a certain love for a special stone is part of it. Formerly, when people were less scientifically knowledgeable, gems always had an aura of mystery, something almost spiritual. That's why they were worn as amulets and talismans. Up to the present day, gemstones have sometimes been used as remedies against illnesses. They could be used in three different ways: the mere presence of a stone was sufficient to effect a cure the gem was placed on the afficited part of the body, or the stone was powdered and eaten. Presently, medical science is experiencing worldwide a revival of the ideas of the middle ages in the use of precious stones through the doctrines of the Esoterics.
