I just wrapped up a fun recutting project. A client needed a 6mm square cushion yellow sapphire with fine color, high clarity and untreated (if possible). I was able to find a badly proportioned square at Tucson this year and was reassured by the vendor it’s untreated. I’ll be sending the stone to the AGL next week, but no matter what this is a fantastic piece. Yet another example of how custom cutting really does make a difference!
after: 1.17ct, 6.12×6.15×3.86mm. (SapY996)
before: 2.45ct, 8.01×8.21×3.95mm
