makes them rounded. The high dome on a Sapphire cabochon increases the color
depth of the stone since there is more material to give it color.

faceted stone. Since the inclusions in a Sapphire cabochon do not detract from
the value of the stone it is important to put more emphasis on the color rather
than the clarity.

and the price for an eye clean Sapphire cabochon will be more expensive. Put
more emphasis on color rather than clarity.
