Duchess Cuts?

I love an east-west setting and have not been able to stop thinking about this .55 carat duchess cut via xothebijoubox on IG: http://instagr.am/p/B4yix-Jlusy/
However, I've never seen a duchess cut in person person, and I was able to find limited information about them online. I did find a post here that was helpful:

The Royal Cuts, developed in Israel and distributed in the United States by Suberi Brothers, New York, include the Empress, the Baroness and the Duchess cuts that resemble the pear, oval and marquise shapes respectively.The difference is, these cuts create the illusion of a much larger diamond, achieved through state-of-the-art cutting technology that enlarges the crown, or top half of the stone, and reduces the pavilion, using four to six extra facets over the traditional 58. A duchess cut diamond has much more brilliance than a regular cut diamond. It has more faceted cuts that catch light rays from every angle and reflects it back.

I wasn't able to learn much more than that, but I'd like to! Does anyone know where I can read up on these? Have you ever seen one? What do you think?

Thanks!

Thank you both so much! The comparison to a rose cut really helps. It's a tough call for me between that and a marquise!

I have a pair of empress cuts, which were cut by the same company. I've never done anything with them. They are very spready for their weight. There really isn't much out there about the line, and they only pop up occasionally. I don't think they ever were very popular.

I think they are super cool cuts. I like some of the more unusual step cuts, so I find these really intriguing.

I’ve never seen it in person but I was going back and forth on Dolly’s (bijoux) duchess ring for awhile. It looks lovely. I think she offers a return policy?
