About Rose Cut Diamonds

The roughly cut diamonds on an authentic ring from the Georgian period still glitter just as they did over 200 years ago, transporting the onlooker back in time. Rose cut diamonds refer to a particular style of cutting diamonds used mainly in the Georgian and Victorian periods. In fact, this cut was so popular that antique dealers often use it to authenticate jewelry pieces from this time. The rose cut fell out of style in the modern period. While it is difficult to find authentic antique rose cut diamonds today, the sellers on eBay have plenty of these precious stones for sale either in loose assortments or affixed within a piece of jewelry. It is possible to find a rose cut diamond ring made over 100 years ago along with rose cut diamond bracelets, necklaces, and other items. Pay attention to the size and color of the diamond, and closely examine any pictures of the gemstone since there are slight variations in the rose cut throughout the years.
