Considered one of the original diamond cuts, the rose cut diamond dates back to the early 1500s. With anywhere from three to 24 triangular facets, rose cut diamonds peak into a dome or kite-shape. This structure resembles the soft curve of a rose petal, hence its name.
Their flat base creates a larger surface area, making rose cuts an excellent choice to maximize your budget. With its subtle, soft brilliance, the look is old-world and distinctly feminine. You’ll love the clear flashes of light and simplistic faceting.
Rose cut diamonds are elegant reminders of the past, which make for a compelling centerpiece and you’ll often see rose cuts in antique jewelry designs. But despite their rarity, this vintage diamond cut is making a comeback in modern jewelry design. Stars such as Jennifer Aniston, Alison Brie and Camila Alves all wear rose cut diamond engagement rings.
