What You Should Know: Settings are closed backed. Stones are beautiful and give off a grey shimmer.

In the 16th century, a diamond cutter was experimenting with new ways of faceting diamonds with newly invented tools. While cleaving away at a stone, they noticed something special about the excess material that was falling off, previously considered to be waste. These top faceted, flat bottomed diamonds were quite beautiful and captured the light differently than the point and table cuts of the time. The rose cut diamond was born, and took the diamond industry by storm.

Rose cut diamonds were favored by all well into the 18th century. These Georgian Era components were handcrafted during the height of rose cut adoration. They are set in silver, which was tradition at the time, with closed back foiled settings. We thought it was important to maintain their original settings, as the resulting greyish shimmer is notably unique and delightful. We fashioned these rose cuts to 14k hoops, updating them for the modern wearer. The perfect glimpse of history to wear upon your lobe.
