Fine Step Cut Gemstones
Fine Step Cut Gemstones are sometime called "Antique Cut" Gemstones due to their simple forms and straight grid like lines that are used.
Minimal and Contemporary Art Jewelry Designers like to choose this style of cut for the simplicity of their reflection. The Step-Cut are usually done on darker gemstones to help allow more light through the cuts and in-turn help in making the gemstones look lighter. However the recent popularity in this cut has driven Jewelry designers to use White or Light color gemstones in Step-Cut as well.
Step-Cut is one of the most common cutting that is done for Spinel Gems, Tourmaline Stone, Spessartite Garnet & other Garnet Stones as well.
