Antique mine cut diamond engagement ring made in 1885
This antique diamond engagement ring was hand made in 18 carat yellow gold. Set with mine cut diamonds, the mine cut diamond was invented at the start of the 18th century. In recent years, mine cut diamonds and European cut diamonds have become so popular for engagement rings, that both cuts of diamonds are being cut today in modern diamond cutting workshops around the world. The mine cut diamond is also known as cushion cut diamonds and so-called as they are not perfectly round and resemble a cushion shape around the side. So full of charm and character combined with being cut entirely by hand, there is nothing quite like genuine antique mine cut diamonds.
