Double rose cut

– D –

A style of cutting a diamond in the form of two diamonds that are rose cut and placed base to base, so that it is faceted as a dome on both sides. It is an old cut, found on the Florentine Diamond and the Sancy Diamond. It was used in the 19th and early 20th centuries for a pendant or for ear-rings. A diamond so cut is sometimes called a ‘double rosette’
