WHY WE LOVE THEM
Larger looking diamond
Contrary to popular belief, the ‘carat’ of a diamond refers to its weight, not it’s size. So, since rose cut diamonds have eliminated the pointed bottom section, all their carat weight shows on the top face. The result: a larger looking diamond.
What this means: if you put a 1.00 carat rose cut diamond beside a 1.00 carat brilliant cut diamond, the rose cut diamond would appear larger.
More diamond for your dollar
Because of this re-proportioned carat weight, you get more visible diamond for your dollar. Example: a 1.00 carat brilliant cut diamond measures 6.5 mm from the top view, whereas a 1.00 carat rose cut diamond measures approximately 7.5m mm.
More shape variation
Because of their flat base, rose cut diamonds can be cut into countless different shapes - round, oval, pear, kite, hexagon, square, and rounded square. And because of their customizable facet arrangements, rose cut diamonds can also be cut into random and irregular shapes.
