Old Cut

Old cut engagement rings


An engagement ring isn’t just a piece of jewellery, it’s more than that. Every ring has its own meaning and value to someone. Every girl wants their perfect diamond ring, but it’s hard to define “perfect” when it comes to diamonds. Each stone is carefully hand cut making each one unique and special.
Stones come in different shapes, sizes and styles. Within shapes there are different cuts. Diamond shapes include round brilliant, princess, pear, emerald, oval, marquise, heart and asscher.

Antique stone cut diamonds

Amongst the different types of diamond cuts there are the ‘Antique stone cuts’, which are unique and one of a kind. Each stone is carefully hand cut by diamond specialist craftsmen using a series of tools. A single stone can take months to perfect, as two diamonds are grinded together until the desired shape is achieved. Only then can a diamond polisher polish the facets.

Here are the antique stone cuts available:

Rose cut

– this cut features a flat bottom with a dome-shaped crown, rising to a single apex. The rose cut dates back to the 1500s.

Old European

– these stones are usually round, circular girdles, small tables, and a heavy crown with great depth. The old European dates between 1700s – 1900s.

Old mine

– these have a more square/cushion shape, it’s an early version of the modern brilliant cut. The old mine cut was originally developed to sparkle in incandescent or candle light; the perfect evening accessory. The old mine dates between 1830s – 1900.

Old cut

– this stone cut is refers to the round outline and large cutlet. The style is meant to maximise light return in low light. The old cut dates back to the 1910s.

Antique cushion

– this cut is a pillow shape, is has a large or open culet and is more rectangular to square in shape with rounded corners. The Antique cushion dates back to 1830s – 1900.

Transitional cut

- This is the transition between the old European and the modern brilliant cuts. A transitional cut stone has similar angles to the modern brilliant cut compared to other antique cuts. . The transitional cut dates back to 1870s – 1940s.

From a technical point of view, the shape can affect the amount of light it reflects, so every bride to be needs to research and understand what each cut means. It may not be an aspect of engagement ring shopping anyone has considered before but it’s as important as choosing the right shape wedding dress.

Popular engagement rings

The most popular choice in the past has been the old cut engagement rings, as each stone is unique and every bride wants to be different from the rest. It’s believed that your chosen engagement ring says a lot about your personality.
Sometimes the bride-to-be needs to come out of her comfort zone and dare to be different, as the perfect ring may be waiting on the other side.
Each old cut diamond has its own characteristics that makes the stone unique, one of a kind, and a ‘cut above the rest’.
