EXPERIMENTAL CUTS

 
 

 

Since I purchased GemCadWin, I have been having fun exploring for myself the fun of designing new gemstone cuts. These models are purely experimental in nature; not having been first designed and made by a true lapidary artist, like the other gemstone cuts available on this site. They are only the product of computer graphics fun and have never been created in the 'real world'. If I have inadvertently re-invented a particular cut designed by someone else, let me know.

We have had reports of a few people downloading the Zip files only to discover that there are no 'contents' in the archives. The reason appears to be due to the use of 'download accelerator' applications. If this occurs, temporarily disable such apps.

Square Framed Cross

I started with an emerald-cut square base and made various cuts on both the pavilion and crown.

Old Fashioned Round

Starting with a Standard Round Brilliant cut, I made cut alterations on the crown, which looked like an old stained/beveled glass window.

A cushion style cut with a pronounced 'compass' flair.

A series of step cuts help to break up the light.
