Table Cut Cubes: Old Technique Adds New Sparkle 

Dakota Stones Table Cut Cube -  A cutting technique that originated in the 16th Century for making diamonds sparkle. The table cut is so named for the simple fact that the top is flat, like your dining table. Each of the four sides has a simple bezel facet.

Modern processes for cutting have improved so greatly in the last 300 odd years that we can now do this across an array of Jaspers, Agates and other gemstones on an entire strand of beads without needing to asses taxes on all the subjects of the kingdom.

Dakota Stones new offering of ‘center drilled’ and ‘corner drilled’ Table Cut Cubes really does offer a design rich shape that dresses up a design. Maybe not as rich as a diamond, but a regular Lapis Cube never looked this good.
