I designed Figaro as another take on the theme in Integral-8, that is, an asymmetric round with lots of action. The name comes from the fact that the facet pattern seen from the side resembles a barber pole .

Figaro is a straightforward design, and is appropriate to all skill levels. BOG-optimized for ISO (88%) and tilt.

At right is a 6 mm 1.06 carat Figaro cut in Rubellite tourmaline.
