- Diamond is the birthstone for April
The Old Mine is one of the oldest cuts recognised today. Its name now refers to the age, cut and cutting method of a stone, however the history is somewhat different. Before Africa became the centre of Diamond mining, most stones came from sites in India and Brazil and stones from this era were referred to as 'from the old mines' or 'an old miners cut'.
This style of cut was very popular in the 18th century and became fashionable again in the Victorian period. These stones are greatly sought after today, partly due the the relative rarity of good examples but mainly because they are so inherently charming.
Old European Cut
This absolutely magnificent example of an Old European brilliant cut Diamond, weighing 2.15 carats, is securely multi claw set in a simple but stylish solid platinum solitaire mount.
Finger size: Q½
The Old European cut was the prevailing style from the 1890s to the 1930s and acts as precursor to Tolkowski's modern round brilliant with a similar circular girdle, however, like the Old Mine cut, these stones also feature a high crown, small table and open culet.
This piece is a fantastic Radiant cut Diamond weighing exactly 1 carat set in an English made 18ct rose gold 'wed fit' mount, designed to sit perfectly against other rings.
Finger size: N
As a predecessor to the modern Princess Cut, the Radiant is a real beauty. It evokes the glamour and sparkle of Hollywood's golden age. Although still a vintage stone, the Radiant Cut is the masterwork of New York lapidary Henry Grossbard; 30 years of work culminating in 1977.
This vintage one carat brilliant cut Diamond has been 'upcycled' into a fantastic English made 18ct rose gold 'Wed Fit' mount.
Designed and built to last many lifetimes.
Finger size: N
The modern Round Brilliant cut was developed by Marcel Tolkowski in 1919. It represents the perfect mathematical algorithm for getting the optimum return of refracting and reflecting light through the top of the stone.
The subtle contrast in colours make this ring a real statement piece.
