We expose the honesty gaps in the diamond And jewelry industry
What is a rose cut diamond you ask? It is a vintage cut diamond first produced about 500 years ago. It has 3 to 24 facets, has a flat bottom and a domed top with triangular facets that makes it resemble petals in a rose. Essentially it looks like only the top half of a diamond.
The rose cut diamond will appear physically larger than a full cut diamond because there is no bottom to the diamond. It is estimated that only 0.1% of all diamonds currently is a rose cut diamond.
The origins of a rose cut started in the 1500’s when diamond cutting techniques and knowledge was basic and the style reflects that simplicity. They were cut by hand and meant to sparkle under candlelight. The large facets performed nicely under low light conditions.
In the last 4 to 5 years it has gained in popularity partly due to celebrity endorsement. Jennifer Aniston received an 8 ct. antique rose cut engagement ring in 2012 from Justin Theroux. Recent history has seen a rise in vintage styled rings and the rose cut follows in this tradition.
“Visions of Beauty” is a video blog featuring customer directed custom designs ranging from the sublime to definitely ornate. It could be modern, vintage, classical, free form or anything else one desires. Customers bring to the table, pictures, sketches or ideas of what they want. With a good understanding of what they desire computer renderings are done for them to see if we understand their wishes. If the renderings are not right in their perceptions adjustments are made until they are satisfied. A wax model is then produced from the renderings which then show the exact size, height and width the ring will end up to be. If the wax is accepted then it is used to make the casting from which it is then finished and the diamonds are set. These are videos of the finished product. Each ring is exquisitely crafted to express the personality of the owner in creating their dream ring. Consider making yours today!
