Comment(s).

¹. The final shape of a diamond and the number of its facets were influenced by the size and shape of the raw material, and consideration of weight retention coupled with the aesthetic desire for symmetry. When the starting point was a cleavage fragment of diamond, the flat cleavage surface could form a flat base to the stone, and was sometimes left unpolished, particularly with small stones. The upper part could be formed into a faceted dome. The form of stone is what we can loosely define as a rose cut. This echoes the English lexicographer Nathan Bailey's succinct definition in the early eighteenth century when he explained that a rose-cut "is one that is quite flat underneath, but whose upper part is cut in divers little faces, usually triangles, the uppermost of which terminates a point" (Jack Ogden, Diamonds: An Early History of the King of Gems, 2018).
