A doublet is two slices of different gemstones, usually, an opaque gem on the bottom and a transparent gem on the top, layered one atop the other to create a unique color. Once they are layered they are cut into shape.
A rose cut gemstone has a flat bottom and a domed, peaked top. This is an old-style cut that was commonly found in 1700-1800’s.
