Rose-cut diamonds belong to the ?antique? family of diamonds introduced as early as the 1500?s. By mid-16th century, various forms of the rose-cut were developed, derived from the preceding types of cuts. A flat base and a crown composed of triangular facets constitute the basic characteristics of rose-cut diamonds the name of which derives from a visible resemblance to the petals of a rose bud. Although mostly circular in outline, other variations such as the oval-shaped 'briolette?, the hexagonal ?Antwerp rose? and the ?double Dutch rose? have also been in use and are also considered to be rose-cuts. Prior to old mine-cut, rose-cut diamonds were cut flat on the underside, as referred to above, the table alone, domed with triangular facets. To give life to these stones, a hollow yellow gold cup was constructed, often with triangular ?facets?, surfaced with pressed foil. The rim of the cup became a bezel and the diamond was mounted over the cup, allowing the light to shine down through the diamond, reflect off the foiled triangles and back out, giving the impression of a well-cut sparkling gem as we know today. Earlier diamonds, including rose-cuts, were cut manually until the early 1900?s, involving a laborious and time-consuming process. Rose-cut diamonds have gradually become scarce and can only be found in antique jewelry. They have been growing rarer by the decade due to the fact that many antique diamonds have been re-cut to suit more modern proportions, resulting in escalating demand.
