Riding on the resurgence of classic, vintage fashion, rose cuts are in the limelight again, and are enjoying a huge comeback! The translucent and dewy rose cuts exude a calm elegance, with almost haikuesque simplicity.

The 1500s saw the birth of rose cuts and the diamonds of this shape were popular during the Georgian and Victorian eras. Rose cuts bearing large facets were hand crafted and were meant to glow under dim light. This vintage cut got its name due to its resemblance to the rose – featuring a flat back, the number of facets converging into a dome mimicking the rose bud unfolding into a bloom.

The most famous rose-cut diamond of all time is the Koh-i-Noor, though the diamond was later reshaped into an oval brilliant-cut gemstone. With the rise of the brilliant-cut diamonds, rose cuts became a thing of past.

But the trend has come full circle, and rose cuts are once again the flavour of the season, mostly because of their shape and weight, and of course, their understated sophistication. Today, other than rounds, rose cuts are also available in oval, pear, and marquise shapes.
