How are trilliants measured?
I am eyeing a trilliant sapphire. It states it is 7x7 mm. How is that typically measured for this shape stone? Is that corner to corner, top point straight down to center of bottom axis, center of left side to center of right side, etc. would that cover a space left by ... say, a 7mm round stone in a dome style ring, perhaps? Angel

I would think if it's point to point, that would extend beyond the gap from the round 7mm but I'm not sure because I don't do this stuff for a living. Huh

For visual purposes, here is the trilliant. It is THE perfect blue for what I have in mind for this project, and I like triliants

I thought I knew, but went to Google to make sure, and it seems the measurements are either point to point OR point to flat. Does anyone know if there's a "right" way to measure trilliants? Confused

ETA: That is definitely a lovely blue!

I did find out, it is point to point. Wink
