Ring Weight: 2.6 grams. The Earliest Form of Brilliant Cut Diamonds, Old Mine Cut Diamonds date back to the Late 17. Basically the Great-Grandfathers of Modern Brilliant Cuts, the Old Mine Cut is Distinguished by its Cushioned, Rounded Shape and were First Created in the Late 17. Century by Polishers, such as Vincent Peruzzi.
Old Mine Cut Diamonds Displayed More Brilliance and Fire than Rose Cuts and by the 18. Century they became the Most Popular Cut Available. The Old Mine Cut Diamonds were Made with a Variety of Facet Patterns but Always with a Small Table, High Crown, and Open Culet. Most that Exist Today are Found in Antique Jewelry from the 18.Century in Antique Georgian and Victorian Pieces. Each Diamond was Uniquely Fashioned and.
