Smooth out the pocket by taking the bud bur across the scribed line. Go back into the relief hole with the ball bur to clean up any flashing. 7.


Using a #06 bud bur, create a cut along the length of the prong to accommodate the stone’s corner facet junction. This cut should match the cut made along the scribed line cut previously. Make sure the relief hole/ pocket is still distinct. Cut back into the hole to clean any flashing that occurred while cutting lines. Remember the circular pocket cut is there to protect the fragile corner point of the princess cut gem. Our goal is to pinch the sides of the point without applying pressure to the point.
