How Gemstones Are Cut – Revisited

by Judy Ellis, Wire-Sculpture.com

Wire Jewelry Resource for August 13, 2014

How Gemstones Are Cut – Revisited

Today we revisit a great video that we featured a couple of years ago.

John Dyer is one of the biggest names in the gem world. John Dyer’s faceted gems are among the most well-cut I’ve ever seen, and you can tell a John Dyer stone by the tiny “JD” logo cut in a discrete place in the gem.

Video by John Dyer

I hope you enjoy this recent video by John Dyer which explains how a rough stone is taken through the cutting and faceting process to become a brilliant stone, which is then perfect for snapsets and wire prongs for use in wire jewelry.

After watching this video, I think we can all appreciate how much work goes into creating a beautiful gemstone!

If you are looking for some gorgeous Gemstones – take a look at our collection of CZ Cubic Zirconia Gemstons, or our One-of-a-Kind Gemstones, or even our One-of-a-kind Pendants. If you love working with birthstones, take a look at our Birthstone Sets.
