I got to shoot this set of rings for Julez Bryant in early December, and I must say I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out. Rose cuts can be tricky to photograph: they don’t have the optical qualities of brilliant cuts that make modern diamonds look sparkly; however, they do have these lovely, large facets that show off the shape of the stone when reflecting light. This pear shape engagement ring with comparatively huge rose cuts surrounding it offers a really cool, bold look that you just don’t see with the traditional halo comprised of smaller RBCs.
