Rosa diamante (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈrosa ðjaˈmante], Precious Rose) is a Spanish-language telenovela produced by United States-based television network Telemundo Studios, Miami and Mexican Argos Comunicación. It is a remake of Argentinian telenovela Perla Negra, written by Enrique Torres. Carla Hernández, Mauricio Ochmann, and Lupita Ferrer are starring in this telenovela.
From July 10 to July 23, 2012, Telemundo aired half-hour episodes of Rosa Diamante weeknights at 8:30pm/7:30c, along with Una Maid en Manhattan. Starting July 24, 2012, Telemundo aired Rosa Diamante weeknights at 8pm/7c, replacing Una Maid en Manhattan. The last episode was broadcast on January 21, 2013, with Pasión Prohibida replacing it the following day. As with most of its other telenovelas, the network broadcast English subtitles as closed captions on CC3.
A wealthy sophisticated woman (Rosaura) abandons a newborn baby girl in a boarding school, and leaves nineteen diamonds with her. 18 of the diamonds are meant to pay for each years of her school expenses, until the baby reaches eighteen years old, and the last diamond is pink colored, and is supposed to be given to the baby girl when she grows up and is ready to leave the school. Years pass, Rosa turns into a beautiful young lady. Her biggest treasures are her boundless imagination and her friendship with Eva, who is another girl at the boarding school.
One fine day, Eva meets a boy named José Ignacio, a wealthy young man who makes fun of her and pretends his name is Adam, just to lure her in. The young Eva falls in love and ends up pregnant. After giving birth, a terrible car accident abruptly ends Eva's life. Rosa, who was also in the accident, is mistakenly identified as Eva in the aftermath, and Rosa lets everyone believe she really is Eva so that little Eduardito will not end up in an orphanage. Rosa believes that by becoming a member of Eva's family, she would find the family love she never had in her own life. Also, Rosa wants to find her family.
