This high-quality simulated sapphire cabochon features unusual bubble-cut faceting on the high dome of the stone. The bubble cut displays circular, concave facets across the top of the stone that create the illusion of bubbles trapped inside. Use the stone by itself for simple designs, or highlight the saturated color by pairing it with contrasting-color stones for a multicolor look. Sapphire is the birthstone for September.
This simulated stone allows you to offer customers the color and characteristics of this gemstone at a lower price point.
