Description

18 carat antique fancy design diamond ring made in 1913

This antique diamond ring is set with a European cut diamond. The European cut diamond was first cut during the mid 19th century, and was an attempt to change the earlier old mine cut diamonds into a more perfect round cut shape. This diamond cut can be considered as the first true round brilliant cut diamonds. The facets from the old miners were kept in their same position, but changed shape to a more round and evenly shaped stone.

The culets became smaller, as it was realised that light could "leak" out from this point in the stone. The development of the modern brilliant cut occurred in the early part of the 20thcentury with further modifications through the century. Diamond cutters apply the brilliant cut to other shapes, and this very exacting skill continues to enthrall craftsman and enthusiasts alike.
