Antique old European cut diamonds are something wonderful! Each of these stones has been cut by hand, and each is a little different in terms of its radiance. An antique cut diamond is always individual, as shown by this sparkling antique single carat that we had set in a modern white gold ring. The diamond has a weight of 1.14 carats and was cut in the years around the turn of the last century. It shows in a luxurious, slightly toned white with very good clarity (I, vs2). Fine milgrain ornamentation, delicate engravings on the ring shoulders and elegant piercing work distinguish the setting, whose white gold with its colourfulness wonderfully accentuates the sparkle of the magnificent center stone. We particularly liked the excellent workmanship, the restrained design and the details, which are still elegant in their details, of the goldsmith's work. The setting was newly created in a small manufactory on our order and was placed by our goldsmith around the antique diamond of the years around 1900. This creates an ideal engagement ring that can easily be worn daily thanks to its compact design. More than a one carat solitaire, individual yet classic - a sparkling promise!

In ancient times, diamonds were valued primarily for their incomparable hardness. As symbols of invincible strength, their beauty was secondary at best. In fact, early diamonds do not appear at all attractive to the modern eye. Medieval cutting techniques also did not allow for spectacular light reflections, and the widespread table cuts only brought out the brightness and colour of the stones. All this changed in the graduated 17th century. The nobility of the Baroque period developed a taste for glittering gemstones. Rose cut diamonds, whose multiple facets beautifully reflected candlelight, were especially popular. In the middle of the century, a first, early brilliant cut developed, called the Mazarin cut after the influential Cardinal Jules Mazarin, characterized by a crown with 17 facets. By the end of the century, these diamonds were then replaced by a new shape, named the Peruzzi cut after its inventor. Vincenzo Peruzzi was a gem cutter from Venice who increased the crown of the diamonds by additional facets to a total of 33, thus increasing the fire of the stones enormously. However, these early diamonds were not standardized in terms of the number and shape of the facets. Each stone was cut in such a way that as much substance as possible could be preserved. New diamond deposits in Brazil in the second half of the 18th century then led to a cut shape that became known as the old mine cut. These diamonds are already very similar to today's full cut brilliant cut diamonds, but several more generations of continuous improvement in cutting techniques were needed before the old mine cut became the old European cut, and finally the modern full cut in the 1940s.
