Here is a truly fabulous diamond engagement ring that was hand made in the Art Deco period of the 1920's and is made even more special by being set with charming antique mine cut diamonds.

The centre diamond measures 0.75 carats, and the other four total 1.35 carats and combined they all add a wonderful sparkle with all the charm and character of diamonds cut from a bygone era.

What is a mine cut diamond?

At the start of the 18th century, a great leap forward emerged with the “invention” of the new 58-facetted diamond. At the time, these were the closest resemblance to today’s brilliant cut diamond. These 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 these features, 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.
