The "Star Halo" Cut as I call it, is based on a Five fold symmetry Star with a fine "Halo" outline of the Star.  It can be Created in most Medium to Light gem materials.  Also this design can be cut in several different outlines/shapes.  So far Round, Square, Pentagons, Cushions and Triangles, and Ovals are Available.

The Star of David is another "Frosted" facet design (Certain facets are left Un-Polished) where the "Magen David Star" shows up quite well in Medium to very dark Gemstone Materials.  I have been cutting a Star of David cut redesigned by Fred Van Sant, which Fred gives Lyle D. Hardy the "original design" credit, for many years.  Fred's design has the Star of David frosted facets on the crown (top) of the gemstone. 

Recently (3-29-2010) I created my version of this Star of David design cut, Bienia "SOD" design, with the frosted facets on the pavilion (bottom) of the gemstone.  It is not a "New" concept, however I have yet to see a similarly cut Star of David gemstone like my version with the Star of David centered, frosted and visible through the table.

Also my design version does not use low "windowed angles" as the final pavilion mains to create the finished effect.  I have several versions & variations of this design with different outlines/shapes like triangles, squares, and rounds so far.

All of these Frosted Novelty designs take a great deal of Precision in the Facet placement to accomplish well. 

* Of  Special Note:  These Custom Faceted "Star Halo" designs because of the nature of the facet placement on the pavilion of the gemstone, are generally a bit deeper than the "commercially"  available mounting for the specific shape.  With this understood,  a person may have to have a custom mounting crafted by a Goldsmith in order to set these "Star Halo" gems for Jewelry use.   Of further Note:  I do not recommend cutting The "Star Halo"  design in any size or shape below 8mm. (millimeters) .

These designs are sure to Capture the attention of any viewer! 

And the Heart of the "Star in Your Life"
