Hi everyone
Fist of all, I hope you are all ok. Based in a country which is hit by corona quite badly, but a health system still working well at the moment, I am stuck at home trying to coordinate full-time job and home-schooling. It's a pain. As a distraction I look at pretty stones. It helps me keep my moods up a bit.
Here is an aquamarine ring. I'm not quite sure what the cut is called? It's not an emerald cut, so would that be called a baguette cut?
Stay safe!

Chequer board or whatever is the correct spelling.

Not a cut that I like, however, each their own and all that.

What a coincidence, I've wondered this too just the other day and interested in the answer. Some stones cut like this have black bars of extinction or transparent bars seemingly at most angles. Like this one (also a video)
They call it an octagon step cut which doesn't indicate much to me.

Sorry, I thought I saw facets along each vertical line when I first looked.

Reminds me of a bar cut, which I love -- at least the table does. I have never seen no pavilion at all like that -- just a flat window. Although i do so see some high-end vendors doing that with big diamonds now (!) on Insta. tanz again.jpg

I agree that it looks like opposed bar cut.

Thank you all so much for your input. I seem to be the "weird cut girl". Some of my stones have unusual cuts - all were presents of my DH, who just shops by the eye...
