Octagonal step-cut amethyst is a modern version of a classic style. The gem is “step-cut” or cut with rectangular facets that ascend the crown in steps. This cut is particularly popular to show off the color of a gem. The amethyst is offset on the band with a small diamond accent on each side to give a bit more sparkle. The bezel center, angular band, and bar set side diamonds all offer an updated look to this classic combination.
