All of the following faceted stones have some OMF (Optically Magnified Facets), otherwise called curved facets. The curved facets add brilliance, keep the stone looking "alive" from a wider range of viewing angles, and create some very interesting reflection patterns within the stone. To create an OMF gem, the stone has to be faceted with flat facets, then moved to a special machine to add the curved facets. OMF gems tend to cost more per carat because this is a very time-consuming process and the stone loses weight when the curved facets are added, but the extra beauty and brightness are worth it!
Unless otherwise noted all materials have been faceted here at the Facet Shoppe by John or Barb.
