Rose Cut Diamond Rings

The rose cut diamond ring has origins as far back as the 16th Century. Rose cut diamonds are one of the earliest forms of diamond cutting and have been extremely popular for centuries. Antique rose cut rings are often made of diamonds; however, the rose cut looks stunningly beautiful when used on coloured diamond. 

This diamond cut is often known as the most romantic diamond cut - its subtle features contribute to its iconic name. Its circular shape and triangle facets resemble petals, which is where the name comes from. Usually featuring between 6-24 facets, other recognisable features include a domed top with a flat base, distinguishing the rose cut diamond ring from many other diamond cuts. 

The way rose cut diamond rings are formed means they stand out amongst the rest - they are designed to catch natural light in a uniquely beautiful way. Its gentle facets were carved by hand and designed to glow under candlelight. The unique gentle shimmer that an antique rose cut ring emanates only emphasises its vintage glamour. Antique rose cut rings often include asymmetries and imperfections, adding to their character. 

Rose cut diamond rings, alongside other rose cut jewellery, have come in and out of style throughout the centuries. Introduced in the 1500s, it attracted much attention from the higher nobility. However, it reached the height of its popularity during the Georgian period. The Georgian period refers to the time between 1714-1837 and is named after the 4 Kings who reigned in England at the time. The Georgians were captivated by how glittering and shiny the rose cut was and incorporated this cut into much of their jewellery. Many Georgian rings that are also rose cut diamond rings are extremely valuable. 

The Victorians also adored antique rose cut rings. Anyone who buys an antique rose cut ring is said to form a meaningful bond with the ring. The flat back of the rose cut diamond is said to bring the wearer a deeper connection to the ring, which is why it has become one of the most romantic diamond cuts.

Many Victorian engagement rings feature rose cut diamonds, as they believed deeply in the romanticism of the stone. 

There was a brief rose cut renaissance at the turn of the Century, with many rose cut diamond rings being produced during the Edwardian period and at the beginning of the 1920s, before the Art Deco revolution. However, there has always been an intrigue surrounding antique rose cut rings, especially amongst vintage jewellery enthusiasts. 

The romanticism and beauty of rose diamond rings and jewellery are not lost today, over 100 years after the height of their popularity. Many celebrity engagement rings feature stunning examples of rose cut diamond rings, showing how their antique beauty and elegance still survive many years later.
