Old European Cut
A predecessor of the round brilliant diamond, the old European cut also has 58 facets. Its higher crown, smaller table and larger culet gives the stone an incredible depth. But what really makes this cut unique is its intention. Owners of these diamonds should wear them in candlelight as when worn in low light, old European diamonds produce a stunning glow, unmatched by any other cut.
This stone has an astounding vintage appeal. You’ll often find them set in heirloom designs including Edwardian, Victorian and Art-Nouveau jewellery.
