Faceting is the most complicated kind of cut, and
creates the most valuable gemstones. The gemstone can be faceted in such
a way that it sparkles. Patience is also important to fashion the
various shapes shown.
The cut faces of a gemstone have different names.
The top of the gemstone is called the crown and the bottom is
called the pavilion. The widest part of the gemstone is its girdle.
The facets on the crown and pavilion have different names, depending on
where they are located.
