What is a rose cut diamond? Rose cutting is faceting style that was used as early as the 16th century. Rose cuts are flat on the bottom with a domed faceted top–think, faceted cabochon. There has been a surge in rose cut diamond and colored stone jewelry in the last few years, and it is most likely a trend that will stay, as designers continue to innovate with naturally colored and opaque to semi-translucent stones.
