Sakuranbo - Marco Voltolini

Pink CZ, test cut.
Rendering simulating a red garnet cut in this design.


I was thinking about a neat design for garnet... Garnets are ofter red, sometimes a nice cherry red color. So why not to try a design with a cherry shape? ("Sakuranbo" is the Japanese cherry fruit)


This design has been optimized for garnet RI (I'd say 1.70 and up would be good...), if you plan to cut this in different materials please check the performance with gemray or your favorite software.

This design has not been test-cut yet, so if you cut it, please consider posting here a picture and/or comments. They will be very welcome.

Being cherry-shaped, this design is intended to be cut in pairs!
