Diamonds are cut into numerous shapes. The best known today is the brilliant. But in the earlier centuries, completely different cuts were far more common! In the 16th century, for example, diamonds were mostly faceted in the rose cut. Numerous famous diamonds such as the "Orloff" and the "Grand Mogul" are designed in this rose cut. It is characterized by the fact that the top of the diamond is faceted in a star shape and the bottom is cut flat. This creates a very specific, soft shimmer that is very different from the sometimes glaring glow of today's brilliant diamonds. Even today, the diamond rose enjoys numerous enthusiasts. A wonderful testimony to this is the set here, a parure of earrings, a ring and a necklace including pendant. All pieces are designed as sparkling flowers and set with diamond rose. A total of seventy-seven diamonds with a total weight of about 4 carats give the flowers of gold a warm glow. According to the hallmark, the jewellery was created in Tunisia in the years after 2005. The North African country can look back on a long jewellery tradition and still today wonderful creations are made in elaborate handwork. Our set is beautifully preserved and delights with its oriental touch, which makes you think of the magic of One Thousand and One Nights.

For many centuries, the city of Amsterdam was the flourishing center of the global diamond trade. The ships of the East India Company brought the precious stones first from India and then, from the 18th century onwards, mainly from Brazil to the home Netherlands. Two hundred years earlier, Jews expelled from Spain and Portugal, who had long been active in the diamond trade, had settled in tolerant Amsterdam. Here they maintained their connections in their old homelands, which was to prove extremely advantageous for trade. With their help, the Dutch succeeded in concluding a profitable contract with the Portuguese crown in 1725: from then on, all diamonds from the newly discovered deposits in Brazil were sold exclusively to Dutch traders. The steady influx of gemstones that now began also inspired the Amsterdam diamond cutters, who, together with their colleagues in Antwerp, soon advanced to become the most important masters of their trade. Numerous technical innovations were developed in the adept workshops, and outdated cutting forms were perfected. One of the city's specialties was the rose cut, which is still referred to in English as the "dutch rose cut".
