Diamond rings really are the ultimate gift, especially if you are planning to present one to your beloved. The wide variety of cuts and shapes they come in is actually the secret behind their immense popularity, as it is these cuts that make them look even more attractive. Some famous cuts used in these rings include the princess cut, brilliant cut, step cut, rose cut, asscher cut, among others. Each of these is uniquely beautiful and exquisite.
Also, in some cases, the shape of a Kimberlite deposit makes it inevitable that underground mining be employed as the extraction method. When deposits are found to be horizontally spread, deeper below the ground, underground mining is the only option. De Beers Canada's Snap Lake mine, DBCM's Venetia Mine in South Africa, and Debswana's Jwaneng Mine in Botswana are some examples.
A typical rose cut diamond has a unique shape and facet arrangement. It has a flat bottom and an elevated pointed dome, with triangular facets forming a point. The dome is generally in the shape of a hemisphere or a pyramid. The number of triangular facets in a rose cut diamond may vary between 12 to 24. Generally it has a lower tier of triangular facets, which in combination with the upper tier, gives the look of a rose bud. The facets in the upper tier are called star facets, and the ones in the lower tier are known as the diagonal facets. Usually, the middle portion of a rose cut diamond has six triangular facets, which meet at a point in the center. The outline of this diamond is usually circular, but there are oval, hexagonal, and pear-shaped domes. The facet arrangement in rose cut diamonds are usually in multiples of six.
But if diamonds are so indestructible, must a gentleman give his lady a newly mined and cut diamond? I say no! The opportunity for a true bargain exists in a pre-owned diamond.
