Take a trip through the looking glass with these styles that have details visible underneath the gemstone. Some designers use a dome of rock crystal quartz to magnify the motif underneath like a lens. Others use the facets to reflect pieces of the pattern like a funhouse mirror. Styles with pavé gems under the center stone combine the look of many stones with the streamlined silhouette of one. The optical effects and patterns add extra interest and appeal to simple styles, giving even inexpensive gems a rich look. These instant conversation pieces will be as enchanting to your customers as any crystal ball.
