Oval gemstone cabochons are undrilled gemstones that have been shaped and polished. They typically feature a domed shape on the top of the piece while the back is completely flat. Cabochons can be incorporated into your jewelry using a variety of techniques, including creating a seed bead bezel with peyote stitch, right angle weave or netting, stitching a right angle weave ring, forming filigree, and simply gluing on a bail. They can also be used in bead embroidery or can be used as embellishments in a bezel component of a corresponding shape and size. For a list of which cabochons can be used with which bezels, check out our cabochons chart. Coloring and markings will vary from cabochon to cabochon, even within the same size and shape, due to the organic nature of the product.
