Platinum diamond engagement ring set with a mine cut diamond

This antique style diamond engagement ring was hand made by our Master Jeweller in platinum. Set with a genuine antique mine cut diamond that measures 1.58 carats, the mine cut diamond was first developed at the start of the 1700’s.

This cut is the closest resemblance to today’s brilliant cut, and 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 this, 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.
