Be bespoke – choose a rose cut diamond this winter
If you’re planning an engagement and looking for the perfect ring, it makes sense to go bespoke. You’ll be able to choose how every aspect of your ring is designed; seeing as it’s going to be on your finger forever, it’s essential that it is perfect in every way!
This season, nothing is hotter than the rose cut diamond. Whilst it’s less common in jewellery pieces today (which makes it all the more sought after), the cut dates from the mid-16th century, and was all the rage in the 1800s and 1900s. A rose-cut diamond has a flat base, which allows jewellery designers to set the stone in a variety of different ways when designing your engagement ring. For example, a space can be left under the stone itself to allow natural light to filter through the diamond, achieving an incredible sparkle – isn’t that what we’re all looking for from a diamond ring?
The vintage appeal of a rose-cut diamond combined with its contemporary, slightly chunky design has cemented its appeal to bold, unique women with a flair for the dramatic, both in London and across the globe. The best way to incorporate a rose-cut diamond into your unique piece of jewellery is to choose a bespoke jewellery designer who can create your dream engagement ring for you!
Another bonus of buying a rose cut is since it is flat on the bottom, the stone’s size appears much larger than its actual carat weight. For example, a 6mm round diamond would be around 0.9 carats in a modern round brilliant cut (a traditional diamond) and around 0.42 carat in a rose cut. They look the same from the top view since they are the same width, but the lack of the base of the rose cut makes it lighter so you end up paying less since it’s the lower carat weight.
