This shield cut brings the best out in a peach tourmaline. The cuts nature is to be flashy and bright. This coupled this with a medium light tone and eye clean peach, makes a great stone. This is about as small as I cut shield cuts and I am glad I put the extra work into it. It would make a great piece of jewelery in white gold, but not yellow gold, because I think it would be lost in a yellow gold setting. The shield cut weighs 1.01 carats.
