When you are ready to have the most epic diamond buying experience send me a quick message here and we will get the adventure started.
Let’s Get Technical
A Rose Cut diamond has between 3 and 24 facets. A traditional round brilliant cut has 57 or 58 facets. Rose Cuts have 3 a flat base which increases their face-up appearance. As a beautiful and unique alternative to a traditional cut diamond Rose Cuts are just rising in popularity and the prices are still reasonable in comparison. Larger Rose Cut stones are graded on the same color, clarity and carat scale as brilliant cut diamonds. Moderate to smaller stones generally don’t have diamond grading reports and are more loosely classified by a color and clarity range. Trust is very important when purchasing a rose cut diamond. Many are classified as “eye-clean” or “visible inclusions” with so many fewer facets there is no extra sparkle to hide the imperfections.
Unlike Salt & Pepper diamonds there are not clarity risks with “eye-clean” rose cut diamonds. They are as robust as a brilliant cut. They also have the added benefit of currently being more reasonably priced than traditional cut diamonds.
There is literally nothing bad a bout a Rose Cut diamond.
