    I read that the bottom of the diamond is flat and the top is domed in a kind of shape that mimics the spiral of a rose.

    lol I only know about it because of King of Queens. There is an episode where they sell Carrie’s engagement ring– which is a rose cut diamond (which I then googled because I didn’t know what that was). It does sound very unique, i’d like to see one in person.

    I knew what it was because a jeweler told me mine is a rose cut. he was wrong (the appraiser said it’s OEC), which goes to show that your local jeweler may not always be right!

    Cool.  I love uncommon/ unusual cuts.

    There are MANY rose cut diamonds on etsy, especially with colored/raw diamonds. I <3 them and would love one for a right hand ring sometime!

    I love them. You will find them in a lot of antique jewelry and they have made a bit of a comeback in recent years. They face up bigger than most other cuts, but don’t have the same kind of sparkle-more of a warm glow.

    @ellabee: I’m not sure, but they come up in the first page of results when you search for “rose cut diamond” on etsy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Interesting cut, but more than that, I really like the claw setting!
