Gemstones have been coveted by humans for millennia for their three virtues: rarity, durability and beauty; with beauty having the greatest influence.

For a cut and polished gem, beauty is measurable. It is through particular proportions in which a stone is cut that it is able to harness light through reflection and refraction as well as show off display lustre and colour. It is for these attributes that the beauty of a gem is judged and valued.

These attributes are invisible without facet designs, which manipulate the light that passes through or bounces off a gem. The main focus in the facet series is to highlight the ingenuity of the designers and place the value on their design rather than the mineral in which they have been applied.
