A jeweler who is looking for a pear-shaped diamond for me, brought a stone that he said was a step cut pair A jeweler who is looking for a pear-shaped diamond for me, brought a stone that he said was a step cut pear. It looks more like a mixed cut between a brilliant and a step. Has anyone ever heard of this type of cut for a pear? It has absolutely no bowtie, which is what he said was a benfit of this type of cut. Although he did not have a certificate on it, the stone is very shallow cut, and looks like a 3 carat although it's only a 1.9. It is clearly a spread cut, but still has some brilliance. I guess the overall question is, has anyone heard of a step cut pear diamond, And would anyone consider buying such a stone? I was looking for a brilliant cut, with very good or excellent polish or symmetry, which I don't believe the stone has, but it is very unique with the different cut and having no bowtie. The fact that it looks so much larger than it carat weight is an added bonus. It is definitely a D color, and although he says it's a VS1, it's more likely A vs2 or si1. Thanks for your help?
