Old Mine Cut
Traditionally known as OLD MINE CUT (OMC) or OLD MINE BRILLIANT (OMB) diamonds can also be described as the antique
cushion cut. This diamond cut has a high crown, a small table size, large or flat culet, and beautiful chunky facets. Old mine cuts typically possess a squarish to rectangular “cushion” shape with soft rounded corners. Circa 1700s.
Old European Cut
Similar to the old mine cut, but more circular in its shape. OLD EUROPEAN CUT DIAMONDS showcase a high crown angle, a small table size, and a small to large open culet. The majority of old European cut diamonds show warmth in color, a broad facet pattern, and old-world charm. Circa 1820s.
The CLASSIC ROSE CUT DIAMOND has a flat base and a crown composed of triangular facets, usually 12-24, in symmetrical arrangement, which rise to form a point. They are usually circular in shape although other shapes are often used. Popular with the modern bride who is searching for antique diamonds that offer a big look, subtle brilliance, and unique character. Circa 1520s.
