Rose Cut

Rose CutAn antique type of diamond cut which gained popularity in the Georgian era. The basic rose cut has a flat base (no pavilion) and a crown composed of triangular facets (usually 12 or 24) in symmetrical arrangement, which rise to form a point. Various forms of the rose cut have been in use since the mid 16th century, though rose cuts are seldom seen nowadays, except in antique jewelry.
