What are Rose Cuts & English Polkies?

Following are three common types of closely-related forms of flat-cut diamonds used in kundan meena jadau jewellery:

1. Polki: This is a uncut diamond with two parallel surfaces being table and a base, while the crown usually is composed of eight facets; this number however may vary depending on the cutter attempt to save the weight

    2. Rose Cut: This is quite similar to a polki, but the difference lies in the pattern of facets which are slightly concave against the flat ones in polki. In addition, the crown portion is quite small as compared to polki.

    3. English Polki: This is comparatively more refined and symmetrical than 'polki' or 'rose cut' and usually contains 24 facets.
