Old Antique Vintage



4.70ct (11.05mm - 10.73mm). This dazzling 4.70ct old transitional cut certified diamond has exceptional VS2 clarity, stunning sparkle, and jaw dropping size! Measuring 11mm in diameter, this diamond has a stunningly large spread and even larger look than typical for its weight! Bridging the gap between old cuts and modern round brilliants, old transitional cut diamonds were produced for a very short period of time and are exceptionally rare. Cut entirely by hand in the 1930s to 1940s, this diamond is charmingly vintage, completely unique, and guaranteed to be 100% conflict free! The best of both worlds, it is cut with proportions similar to modern standards which allows it to have a fantastic spread and phenomenal light performance!

This is truly a one of a kind stone with a magnificent presence! Bright and lively, this diamond would make a gorgeous and eye catching center for an engagement or right hand ring. Certified by EGL-USA, the diamond received a clarity grade of VS2.

Exceptionally clean, the inclusions are barely visible under 10x magnification and completely invisible to the naked eye! Graded O-P for color, the diamond faces up with very minimal warmth. When viewed at an angle, the body of the stone does show a very subtle hint of warmth, as is typical for diamonds from this time period; however, when facing up the bright white reflections in its sparkle largely overwhelm any touch of color. This diamond has a particularly bright cut which helps tremendously to mask the subtle color. It truly looks quite white on the face up. The very subtle body warmth of this diamond would blend perfectly set in yellow or rose gold. As an old transitional cut, the diamond has wide facets and a small open culet similar to an old European cut but with proportions similar to modern standards. It absolutely retains the unique charm of a hand cut stone. Overall, it is a magnificent and high quality stone, exceptionally clean, impressively large, and dazzlingly vibrant!

With its fantastic cut, excellent VS2 clarity, impressive 4.70 carat size, and rare provenance, it is sure to become an heirloom, bringing joy to your family for generations to come! You may browse our collection of semi-mounts or inquire about a one of a kind custom design. With its vintage charm, bright sparkle, and colorful fire, it would make a striking engagement or right hand ring. Make it yours before its gone! For additional details, please see below.
