Beautiful and unique ring…  Unusual cuts can be done for a variety of different reasons.  Typically it is because 1) there is an imperfection that they are trying to ameliorate/minimize 2) get maximal brilliance out of the stone 3) there was a weakness or error in cutting and this is the way they could best salvage the stone.

Does your certificate have any comments on it regarding the stone?  That might help you to understand.  It might say "drilled" which would mean they were removing an imperfection or make special notation about the cut.

Have you tried just taking it to another jeweler and asking them?

I probably wouldn’t bother to get it certified either, but just know that with an uncertified stone, all bets are off… so just assume it’s #2 of the above and look at it and love it for it’s unique and amazing attributes.  It really is cool!
