Diamond engagement ring in platinum and our own 16 carat gold

This diamond engagement ring has been entirely handmade by our Master Jeweller in platinum and our very own 16 carat gold. This is a gold carat and alloy that we make ourselves and is exclusive to our workshop and designs.

In the centre of this engagement ring is a mine cut diamond measuring 0.51 carats.

The mine cut diamond was first developed at the start of the 1700’s.

This cut is the closest resemblance to today’s brilliant cut, and are referred to as old mine cuts, or old miners. These were cut often squarish or cushion shaped, with quite a steep angle on the crown and pavilion, to maximise weight retention. As well as this, the “old miners” often had quite a large culet or “collet”, the horizontal base formed by the blunting of a point when the stone is cut as a brilliant.
