Old Antique Vintage




SI3-I1 (Primary inclusion on edge). 0.97ct (5.94mm x 5.52mm). This striking and bright white 0.97ct old mine cushion cut diamond has charmingly wide hand cut facets that sparkle dazzlingly and have spectacularly vivid fire! Graded F for color, it is brilliantly white, a rare feature in old cut diamonds! Cut by hand during the Victorian era, this rare diamond is completely unique, guaranteed to be ethically sourced, and full of antique charm.

Its beautiful cut is well executed with an elegant cushion shape. Gathering life for more than a century, this diamond will bring depth and longevity as well as dazzling beauty to an engagement or right hand ring. The diamond is graded F for color, and it is brilliantly white and colorless. Diamonds from this time period tend to show a touch of color, so it is rare to find a bright white old cut such as this one!

The diamond is graded SI3-I1 for clarity, and it is eye clean on the hand. The primary inclusion is on the very edge of the stone and could be partially covered by a prong when set. Its location makes it very inconspicuous. The additional inclusions are small and scattered. They are too small to see with the naked eye.

The diamond retains its full bright and vibrant brilliance. As an old mine cut, the diamond has wide, hand cut facets which sparkle magnificently with vivid flashes of colorful fire! At 0.97ct this diamond offers a comparable look to a 1 carat diamond, but it is offered at a value as diamond prices jump at the 1 carat mark.
