This gorgeous Old Mine Cut Diamond is the most beautiful plump and chunky stone that would make a perfect centre piece for a special engagement ring. The Old Mine Cut is an early form of the modern Brilliant Cut Diamond, owing to the tools available at the time the shape follows the natural shape of the rough Diamond meaning that the crown is high and facets are wide. Each Diamond was painstakingly cut by hand following the natural form of the individual stone, unlike the modern stones of today where each one is cut as close to the ‘ideal’ Brilliant Cut as possible, resulting in each modern Diamond looking exactly the same as the next.
Weighing 1.06 Carat the Diamond measures mm 6.5mm X 5.2mm. The Diamond is super clear with no visible inclusions, and approximately VS Clarity. The gorgeous warm hue is approximately K-L Colour and cut at a time where Diamonds weren’t graded by how white they were. Candlelight was the main light source at this time, a backdrop where Diamonds with a warmth of colour really came alive.
