Wasn't there a site somewhere that featured downloadable gems and diamonds with different cuts in obj, dfx or some other format? Does anyone know if it's still around?

Have you tried using TopMod (http://www.topmod3d.org/ - opensource) and combining a few primitives? Sounds like an ideal application.

You can also import your own objects (.obj) and apply polygonal refinements of many kinds .. (activate the 'remeshing tools' sidebar). Works well.

There's also the gemstone tool in Modeler (Create > Primitives > More), which is actually quite precise with the right technical terms and so on. Obviously if you are looking for more complex cuts it won't do as it stands, but it gives you a start.

thanks guys. I also found this link: http://www.rockhounds.com/rockshop/gem_designs/design_index.shtml , so I guess I'm off to a good start with your help.
