Sugarloaf Cut Gemstone
A sugarloaf cut gemstone is a unique and mesmerizing gemstone that has been cut in a slightly conical shape with curved sides. This type of gemstone was originally developed by the Portuguese in the 18th century and is known for its exceptional brilliance and luster. It features a larger table, which creates an optical illusion of greater size than what it actually is, making it an attractive choice for jewelry lovers.
A sugarloaf cut gemstone can be found in almost any variety of stones including diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, topaz and more. The stone is usually cut deeper than similar cuts such as the round brilliant or cushion cut to achieve maximum sparkle and brilliance.
