PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO THOROUGHLY READ ENTIRE LISTING. Old mine cut diamonds, also known as a cushion cut, are basically the great-grandfathers of modern brilliant cuts. Developed in 18th century Europe, these cuts were not round but had a slightly curved edge which formed a soft square. They were made with a variety of facet patterns, but always with a small table, high crown, and larger chalet, giving them an architectural look. These diamonds were cut virtually by hand before the invention of modern bruting and the motorized saw and therefor have a more natural unprocessed look.
Like the old mine cut, diamonds cut into this shape possess a high crown, small table, and a large, flat culet. However, the old European cut has a circular girdle.
With 58 facets, it is the predecessor of todays modern round brilliant cut. The Old European cut dates to the 1800's and was used mostly during the Victorian , Edwardian , and Art Nouveau/Deco eras. For consideration is this FABULOUS 14kt white gold engagement or right hand ring.
