Welcome to the Gemology Online Faceting Design Competition database!

All patterns on this page were written as part of Gemology Online's annual Faceting Design Competition. To access the diagrams, simply click on the image of the stone. To view the image up-close, click on the small "picture-in-picture" icon in the lower-right corner. If a computer rendering and an actual stone are displayed, clicking on the rendering will take you to the diagram, while clicking on the actual stone will take you to a page of test-cuts.

You can search this database in three ways:

  • By browsing the thumbnail images below
  • By combining search criteria in a database search (features designs from other pages as well)

Posting designs is restricted to the administrators of the faceting design competition. Please do not post your own designs here.
