Or in all these different shapes, from brilliant to trilliant

In addition to these standard gemstone shapes, gem designers are inventing new ways of cutting gemstones in unique individual styles. Some facet gems in unusual geometrical shapes, some carve gemstones in soft sculptural shapes, and some use a combination of faceting and carving. In the future, Gem Site will feature some of this gemstone art.
