Such an array of shimmering rose cut diamonds are arranged in two infinite circles.
These form a frame for the center stone and result in an impressive display. Rose cuts, with their large planar facets, catch the light and send it back to the eye in a kaleidoscopic fashion.
Set closed backed and foiled beneath the diamonds, they emanate with silvery, pink, bronze, and white hues. This is amplified by the age of the foiling underneath that imparts both a warm and cool softness to the entire cluster.
In various lights, the diamonds shift in their shades of refraction. While this looks like a ring bursting with almost 3 carats of diamonds, as rose cuts are flat on the bottom, the total weight is less. The upside...such a great presence, with FAR less impact on the wallet.
Twenty-six rose cut diamonds
Total weight of 1.50 carats
Color I-N, SI1-I2
Silver topped 14k yellow gold
Jewelry dating fact: Modern rose cut diamonds are easily identified by their perfectly round perimeters and machine-like regularity in their facets. If you note those characteristics, you can be sure they are modern in date and created to resemble the far antique rose cuts. See how these rose cuts are all individual in shape, and size with their facets are distinct - a sign of hand polishing.
