The Allure: Old European Cut White Diamond

Old European Cut White Diamond Engagement Rings

The allure of the Old European Cut diamond, here in quarter carat (bottom) and half carat (top) weights. The Old European Cut was introduced in the 1890s and its strong presence lingered through the 1930s, around when modern bruting (cutting/faceting) machines were invented. Before then, diamond cutters were faceting by their steady hands. You’ll notice these distinct characteristics on an OEC: thicker facets, high crown, small table, open culet. ⭐️
