What are Rose Cut Diamonds

There have been many types of diamond shapes and cuts developed over the past centuries, and rose cut diamonds are amongst the most unique and desirable. 

This elegant and demur cut dates back to the early 16th century, and was cut to resemble the center of a rose-bud. They are also one of the few cuts that are still cut and polished by hand.

What is especially unique about these rare beauties is they don’t have a culet or pavilion like modern cut diamonds; they are flat on the bottom and form a low pyramid on top of the stone.  This is especially appealing for those who like low profile designs, and a diamond that appears larger as the weight of these diamonds are across the top
