We Love the Old Mine Cut Diamond!

Antique diamonds are incredible for their sparkle, pastel rainbow flashes and for the fact that they were uniquely cut by hand hundreds of years ago! 

Developed in 18th century Europe, old mine 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 culet (the open "hole," the heart of the stone you see down at the bottom.)

A gorgeous antique piece, this platinum and diamond ring was most likely created over 100 years ago. It features recognizable antique design elements like the 8-prong setting for the center stone and dainty milgrain detailing around the accent diamonds in the slightly tapered shoulders. The appraisal value of the ring is $9,000.

The center stone is an old mine cut brilliant diamond with an estimated weight of 1.02ct, measuring 5.96 x 6.29 x 3.89mm. It is SI2 (eye-clean... all inclusions are seen through magnified photos), and is a white H color. Each side is accented by three old single cut diamonds, bead set, with a total weight of 0.07ct.  

The band is a 1.6mm wide rounded shank. It is currently a size 8.25 and can be resized by us or by your local jeweler. One the ring is resized, however, it is non-refundable. 


Making a Difference:

Help fight climate change with this purchase! Trees are like the lungs of the planet...our "natural air purifiers." They breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. Additionally, they provide habitat for birds and other wildlife and play a vital role in our natural water cycle. Forests help regulate the water in the air through a process called transpiration. They absorb thousands of gallons of water into their roots. Excess water is then released through the leaves back into the air. For every purchase made, I donate one planted tree through Plant-It 2020. Small changes by individuals can make a difference in the fight against climate change.
