There is nothing quite like a genuine antique diamond engagement ring, and nothing quite as special as when they are set with antique diamonds such as in this antique mine cut diamond engagement ring dating from the 1880’s.
Mine cut diamonds were entirely cut by hand and have a somewhat cushion shape to them and are also known as cushion cut diamonds or old mine cut diamonds and have such a charm and character to them and a unique shape not seen in today’s modern cut diamonds.

And this antique diamond engagement ring is set with five vibrant old mine cut diamonds that total 0.58 carats and have a wonderful sparkle to them that is highlighted by the claw setting which allows the maximum amount of light to enter each diamond.
Set into a hand made setting in 18ct yellow gold, the ring measured 13.5mm across by 5.1mm wide and sits so well on the finger.
If you have been looking for a genuine antique diamond engagement ring, then this one might just be the one.
