What is a cabochon?

Cabochon: “Dome-shaped stone, without facets

It refers to the shape of the bead or gem, and in my cabochon jewellery, it’s the rounded, convex resin part of the earring or pendant. Gemstones can come in cabochon shape, although they’re usually facet-cut,

In my jewellery pieces, the cabochon with a picture under it is glued into a frame, or bezel.

A cabochon is a special type of gemstone that has been shaped and polished, rather than faceted. As a result, these gemstones have a domed surface and a flat back.Joseph Jewelry
