Art Deco was a prominent style for jewelry in the 1920s and 1930s, characterized by geometric patterns and abstract designs using diamonds and gems in contrasting colors. The fact that it was a hit was no surprise: flappers and suffragettes of the Roaring 20s had little interest in wearing tiaras, diadems, cameos and other staples of the grandes dames of Victorian England (1837-1901). Rather, they wanted rings, long necklaces, long earrings and bracelets that complemented their short skirts, shorter hair, plunging necklines – and new sense of self.

With anywhere from 3 to 24 facets, a Rose Cut Diamond resembles the shape of a rose bud. In general, they are flat at the bottom and creating a larger surface area for the stone’s brilliance.And much like the sprawling petals of a fully bloomed rose, the peaked top is covered in distinctive triangle facets.
One of the most striking characteristics of a Rose Cut Diamond is it’s flat base. These stones lack a pavilion, which is the pointy base that you typically see on modern round brilliant diamonds.
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 carat 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 a lower carat weight.
