Each of our vintage diamonds is one of a kind – once chosen, it cannot be replaced. The diamond pictured is the diamond you will receive.
At first glance this Old European diamond could be mistaken for a modern cut stone. It’s beautiful and fairly clear to the naked eye. If you look really closely, you can spot some tiny freckle like inclusions which we think only adds to the stones individuality.
The stone has been photographed in a temporary setting and can be set in a bespoke ring of your choosing. The price listed is for this diamond set in a basket claw on a 2mm wide 18ct yellow gold sandcast band. You can see an example of a finished vintage diamond engagement ring in the final image for reference.
This diamond can be made into a piece of jewellery of your choice. For more information and inspiration we have written a detailed post on designing your bespoke engagement ring here.
These beautiful diamonds were the precursor of the modern brilliant cut diamonds. Each Old European cut diamond was cut by hand and with it’s proportions judged by eye. They were cut to best reflect and sparkle in the light of their era – candlelight. As such, they come into their own in yellow gold.
Compared to a modern brilliant cut diamond, an Old European cut diamond will certainly look a little less precise, but no two European cuts will ever be the same. What they may lack in the industry standard of the four C’s, they make up for with an abundance of individuality, character and a timeless beauty. Compare vintage and modern diamonds here.
Ethics are important to us. We are proud to use Old European cut diamonds in our jewellery as they represent and support an ethical and environmentally considered alternative to modern diamonds, as well as a beautiful piece of continued history.
