Black Mayur Cut Diamond(Tm) And Champagne Diamond 2.60ctw Round, 10k Rose Gold Ring. Measures 7/16"l X 1/16"w. Web Only
The name Mayur, meaning `peacock' in the ancient Sanskrit language, beautifully describes the visual presence of this specialty cut diamond. Just as a male peacock will fully display his bold colorful feather train to entice females, the Mayur Cut Diamond gives the presence of a larger than life diamond. Boldly displaying a large table, or top of your diamond, the Mayur cut has been traditionally known as a rose cut. The rose cut is one of the oldest known diamond cuts and was first developed in the mid 17th century when India's ruling Shah's son sold an enormous rose cut diamond to the famed gem merchant and world traveler Jean Baptiste Tavernier. The Mayur Diamond Cut pays homage to India, the first known diamond source. It has a flat base and a crown (top portion) composed of multiple triangular facets that form a pointed dome, giving the appearance of a much larger diamond when viewed face up. Maximizing the size of each diamond, the Mayur Diamond Cut gives a larger-than-life presence, much like the male peacock instinctively does to attract a female mate. A bold, dramatic and antique cutting style that's perfect for today's jewelry designs. Mayur Cut Diamonds, only on Jewelry Television and jtv.com.
