rose cut (or rosette). An early style of cutting that is thought to have originated in India and to have been brought to Europe by the Venetians. In its most usual form, it has a base of one large flat facet and a somewhat dome-shaped top that is covered with a varied number of triangular facets and terminates in a point. The rose cut is now confined principally to small Diamonds. See common rose
