Anyone who wishes to purchase gemstone jewelry, irrespective of the occasion, must keep the 4 C’s in mind - color, cut, clarity, and cut. We will explore the ‘cut’ in this blog, specifically of the Oval and Cushion variety and how gorgeous they tend to make tanzanite jewelry designs.
Reasoning it Right
The ‘cushion’ or ‘pillow cut’ were initially referred to as the ‘Old Mines Cut’. It was introduced in the late 1800s and is a contemporary spin on classic variants. As the name suggests, the gemstone emulates a cushion-like shape. The cushion cut involves 64 precise facets that bring to the surface a gem’s luxuriant brilliance and luster, adding a deeper level of cadence to the jeweled piece.
Oval-cut, as the name suggests, is a combination of the round and marquise cut. It features 69 facets that give the impression of a larger size. This cut also allows for a larger refraction of light, further amplifying the luster of the gem and bringing out the colors more vividly. For tanzanite’s trichroic nature, that would include a bluish-violet with a slight red, depending on how the light hits it and your angle of view. The shape tends to exude a sense of romance when embellishing jewelry, more so if it’s tanzanite. The oval-cut is also a preferred shape for rings as it tends to make a wearer’s fingers look longer.
Take our 2.02 oval tanzanite ring for instance. The design imparts an imperial appeal, as the gemstone takes center stage with a slew of diamonds worth 0.38 Cttw, that bedazzle the ring.
