Old European Cut Diamond

The Old European Cut Diamond is the style of diamond cut after the ‘Old Mine Cut’ in the 1700s. The Old European cut was a step closer than the ‘old mine cut’ to the common round brilliant cut we know and love today – it was also much rounder in shape than the old mine cut and would not be considered a “cushion” cut diamond shape if you see them today. If you find an “Old European Cut” diamond you are looking at history – this was before the modern use of real diamond saws and tools and these original, natural diamonds are highly sought after by collectors.

Old Mine Cut Diamond

Old Mine Cut diamonds date back to the 18th Century, making these very rare diamonds from the 1700’s and would be considered Antiques rather than Vintage, most of them. The style of the cut, is a rounded square or rectangular cushion-style cut. But, because the ‘Old Mine Cut’ diamond was practiced before diamond bruting was invented, they are expected to have dull edges and of course the cut is not as sophisticated as what we now call round brilliant or true cushion cut diamonds. These pieces came before the “Old European Cut” diamonds and are interesting when viewed up close, lexicon is apparent as you can almost see each hand-crafted cut on the diamond surface.
