Catch Them If You Cab: Cabochon-Cut Jewels for All Occasions

Sleek cabochon cuts have swiftly become the design set’s go-to stone style. Like a wearable crystal ball of color, these smooth operators perfectly capture a gem’s brilliant hues. Cool inclusions, meanwhile, are a focal point of interest, captured forever in precious dome form. Bonus: Cabs often cost less than their faceted (and more formal) counterparts.
