When was the Art Deco period?
It is generally accepted that the Art Deco era was from 1920 until 1940. Having said that, there are a few publications that will say that it started at the end of World War One in 1918, and lasted until the 1950's. However as the Art Deco movement is defined by its style, rather than the reign of a monarch, a few years one way or the other shouldn't be the argued.

What is a European cut diamond?
During the mid 19th century, the old European cut came into focus, and was an attempt to change the old mine cut stones into a more perfect round cut. These stones 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.
