Rose Cut Diamond Cufflinks

Got this pair of 14k Rose cut diamonds cufflinks yesterday at the JewelFest 2008.

The rose cut was first introduced in the early to mid 1500s by jewelers experimenting with unique geometrical diamond shapes. The rose cut is unlike any other diamond cut – it has a completely different anatomy to its facets and planes. Rose cuts are flat bottomed without the distinctive tapering body; instead, the crown of the gem is elevated in a faceted dome where triangular facets mimic the progressively tighter spiral of a rose. As the between 3 and 24 facets come together they mirror the central focal point of a rose bud and offer a unique perspective of diamond beauty

I really like the antique enthic feel to it. It doesnt give the overly bling factor that normal cut diamonds have!
