The trouble with old cut diamonds is that once you have one, they are all you will ever want. If you've never experienced the fire and flash of an old Mine or Cushion cut diamond, I highly recommend you try it, and once you do, you'll never go back. Sure, modern brilliant cuts have more facets, but don't be fooled, more isn't always better. More facets might give you more sparkle, but bigger facets give you more flash and more fire. These hand cut diamonds have a truly artisanal feel to them, each one is a bit different in shape, cut by eye to it's best advantage.
This stunning English Victorian ring is set with five gorgeous old European cushion cut diamonds. These full cuts are full of fire and flash and add up to just over 1.5 carats in total diamond weight. In between each larger stone is set two small rose cut diamonds, just for extra sparkle. The stones are set into a hand crafted 18 karat gold ring with a scrolling gallery. The gallery shows a bit of wear on each side which was caused by wearing this ring next to another one, it doesn't effect the integrity of the ring at all, just gives it a bit of history. This ring is currently a size 5 and while it could be sized a little bit, this style of ring is notoriously difficult to size up or down more than a size or so. It measures 17 mm across and 5.2 mm high and sits 4.8 mm off the finger. The ring is marked 18 ct, it was most likely made in England in about 1900.
