The rose cut originated in the 1500's and was commonly used through the Georgian and Victorian eras. Like other antique diamond cuts, they were cut by hand and meant to dazzle under candlelight.
Their large, wide facets performed exquisitely in low light conditions. The most notable features of a rose cut diamond are their flat back and domed top covered in triangular facets. The number of these facets can vary from as few as 3 up to as many as 24, which terminate at the very top in a single apex.
This is where the term “rose” from its name originates; It’s facets are said to resemble the petals unfolding in a rose bud.
