Amethyst and Mother of Pearl Round Cabochon Doublet – 10mm. Single stone.
Our cabochons have been custom cut with high domes which is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also make for a more durable gemstone. They also come with a stunning polish and perfectly flat bases to make setting as simple as possible.
While the top gives a beautiful polish and colour, the mother of pearl backing gives these gemstones an almost magical glow, and makes them no drama at all when you need to make a closed back settings.
The stones are created in much the same way as opal doublets, with a fine layer of epoxy cementing the two layers together. Because of the epoxy, it is important not to heat the stone (hot water is fine for when using thermoplastic for setting) and not to soak the stones in acetone / denatured alcohol. It is also advisable not to use a steam cleaner or ultrasonic with these stones.
Although these stones have been custom made to our specifications, our manufacturer has made similar doublets for many large, high-end silver jewellery designers in the past, so you can rest assured of the quality.
