Rose cut diamond is a very beautiful and unique diamond cut which has wonderful appearance reminiscent of older and vintage rings. It is first introduced in the early to mid 1500s by jewellers who made an experiment with geometrical diamond shape. Unlike any other diamond cuts, a rose cut has a completely different part for the facets and planes. The bottom of rose cut diamond is flat without a distinctive tapering body. The crown of it is elevated in faceted dome in where triangular facets mimic the tighter spiral of rose. Between 3 and 24 facets come together and mirror the central focal point of a rose bud, giving a unique perspective of beauty in diamond.

The term cut refers to how the different planes and angles in the surface of a gem come together, for this one, in a rose pattern. The term shape refers to the whole profile of the gem and the outline it presents. Most rose cut diamonds are round, pear, or oval shapes, even though modern jewellers are experimenting to create more unique shapes.

Diamond with a rose cut has its advantages and disadvantages. The style of rose cut diamond seeks to maximize the carat weight of the diamond, which dulls its brilliance in turn. Actually, rather than sparkle from light which refracts inside, rose cut diamonds tend to shine from light which reflects off the facets. The benefit from this fact that the interior flaws can be invisible, but the colour can be distorted since the light is not inside to brighten it. In order to give more sparkle to a rose cut diamond, some jewellers give a thin layer of reflective silver, gold or tin foil to increase the brilliance. A rose cut diamond focuses attention on the surface rather than the interior of the diamond, enhancing the clarity, so that people can choose a less expensive rose cut diamond.
