The briolette cut is used for gemstones that are hung rather than set and therefore normally do not have a table facet. The cut is sometimes referred to as a drop cut and the facets are normally triangular.
There is no crown or pavilion with this cut and it s primarily designed to allow the stone’s facets to show a high amount of lustre.
Briolette cut gems are often partially drilled and then glue is used to secure a metal pin within the gem. This type of hanging setting is often seen in earrings and necklaces. Some beaded bracelets and necklaces also utilise the briolette cut, but in these instances a hole is drilled through the gem which is then strung on a wire.
