Cleopatra’s Eye is one of the most spectacular and iconic faceting designs ever created.
Watch this short video to see just how gorgeous this cut is. Below you can see the faceting diagram.
It is believed by some to be the most beautiful and mesmerizing faceting design ever. The Cleopatra’s Eye was originally designed by Bob Keller in 1999 and this example was expertly faceted by Ray Morton.
The Cubic Zirconia used to craft this gem has excellent optical properties with the dispersion (the play of colors) much greater than diamond (0.065 vs 0.044).
Thanks, Ray for sharing this information and your exquisite example with the group!
