The rose cut, like step cuts were derived from older cuts. The basic rose cut has a flat base with no pavilion and a crown
composed of 12 or 24 triangular facets in symmetrical arrangement, which rise to form a point. Mostly circular in outline
variations include the oval briolette, the hexagonal Antwerp rose and double Dutch rose. Rose cuts are seen in antique jewelry
and in repairing or reproducing antique pieces. Melée diamonds routinely utilize the rose cut.
