What is a "rose cut" diamond?
rose cuts are older but they are different than old mine cuts. i doubt cutters would choose a rose cut to preserve carat weight since that cut is not very popular except for in some vintage style jewelry.16ocean|1313041587|2988391 said:ok . . . Thank you for your prompt reply and diagram.
Is that an older cut like an "old mine cut" or do diamond cutters chose that cut to preserve the carat weight?
Rose cuts are older cuts, yes-the style emerged at the beginning of the 16th century. The shape of the rough dictates the shape of the faceted diamond, and rose cuts are a great use of flatter material.16ocean|1313041587|2988391 said:Is that an older cut like an "old mine cut" or do diamond cutters chose that cut to preserve the carat weight?
