What is a briolette?

- Sep 30, 2018-

A briolette is a 3-dimensional stone shaped like a pear or teardrop and has triangular faces cut diagonally along its surface. They are distinct from other shapes of gemstones since their appearance is the same from all directions. Their shape is described as without “a table (face)”, and “pavilion (back).” This makes them great choices for hanging pendants and earrings.
