Behold Our Latest Blossom: Rose Cut Moissanite
There’s a New Bloom in Town
Charles & Colvard pays homage to old world charm with their rose cut moissanite gemstones. Shining a new light on an antique stone, this beautiful bloom bursts with romantic charm. They’ve combined the premier quality of colorless Forever One™ moissanite with precision cutting to achieve the pinnacle of the rose cut.
A Cut from Eras Past
Originating in the 1500s, this vintage cut features a flat base with a domed top that resembles the petals of a rosebud. Cut by hand at a time when tools were not as advanced, this gem tops off at 24 facets, exhibiting a soft luster. Popular during the Georgian and Victorian eras, the beauty of the cut was maximized by the diffused lighting of candles.
The Flower on Top
Because a rose cut gem has a domed top and no pavilion, the surface area appears larger than a different cut of the same size. With moissanite, customers can choose a larger size and stay within their budget. It’s available in sizes 2.5mm to 9.0mm.
A Fresh Perspective
The beauty of rose cut gems has never been lost, though popularity waned when round and brilliant cuts were made available. There has been a resurgence of this particular cut ever since Justin Theroux proposed to Jennifer Aniston back in 2012, as well as a growing interest with vintage-inspired styles in general.
Rose cut moissanite lends antique appeal to modern designs. Its lustrous glow makes it a versatile choice suitable to many different designs, whether a classic prong setting or within the clean lines of a chic bezel setting. And they’re just perfect for springtime when everything around us starts to bloom.
