A Beginners Guide to Faceting

A book designed to teach you about faceting and is suitable for the complete beginner. The book is designed so that you can teach yourself to facet gemstones from scratch.

Each chapter leads you through the basics of faceting and highlights the most important principles for the beginner. You are guided from the simplest to the more complex cuts chapter by chapter and step by step.

There are also chapters to extend the more experienced facetor including an introduction to the cutting of difficult soft gemstones.

Cutting instructions are included for a large number of well known cuts and many new ones.

The instructions are accompanied by clear step by step diagrams which enable the learner to see how each stage develops.
