Sapphire Cabochons

The term cabochon refers to one of the oldest cutting styles for gemstones and sapphires.  Rather than faceting a gemstone, the stone is cut to have a smooth, glasslike polished surface.  The most common cabochon cut is an oval with a rounded dome.  The cabochon cut is best suited for color enthusiasts as it displays a sapphire’s raw color and beauty.

One of the most desirable cabochon styles is the sugarloaf.  Sugarloaf cabochons have been cut to have a 4-sided pyramid shape.

We have recently added a number of sugarloaf rubies to our inventory; C2024 and C2021 are two of my favorites.

One of the most impressive items in our inventory is C2011, a padparadscha sugarloaf cabochon sapphire.  It is very unusual to find a padparadscha cabochon and this gem is a great find for a sapphire collector.
