The briolette cut is exclusive by design. A complicated, labor-intensive style pioneered in India close to 1,000 years ago, the technique involves cutting facets all the way around the stone, elongating it into an elegant teardrop shape. Today, there are very few gemstone cutters with the patience, the nerve, or even the old-fashioned tools to carefully and successfully carve the many facets a briolette cut demands, effectively placing this luxury look beyond the reach of all but a select few.
Of course, we took that as a challenge. Our Brio Bracelet features briolette-cut stones of colorful fluorite, each faceted into that elegant teardrop shape to create a bracelet that is literally a cut above — a full 100-carats of carefully crafted luxury. The rainbow of vibrantly colored fluorite stones is sensationally strung across a gold-finished bracelet, with the famous cut on full display.
There was a time when only membership of a royal household would give you the means to invest in briolettecut jewelry. Even today, retail stores will add extra dollars to match the extra facets. But we're changing all that. Thanks to the relationships we've established with expert cutters, we can make the Brio Bracelet available for this exclusive price. Stauer brings you a genuine luxury look at a price that makes sense. Do you make the cut? If you're a Stauer customer then the answer is YES!
