The Subtle Rose Cut
The gentleman wanted to involve his girlfriend in the design from the beginning. There was a slight communication challenge: she was living across the Atlantic! We started by sharing a Pinterest board of ideas that she could comment on until we had a good idea of her style preferences. She was looking for something different, but not too flashy.
We first settled on the centre stone. Rather than a typical brilliant cut diamond, we found a stunning rose cut so clear and well-proportioned that, when set upside down, it almost looked like a brilliant cut (as shown here). This, combined with the use of yellow rather than white gold, gives the ring a slightly softer, more classic and rustic feel.
