This 0.98ct old transitional cut diamond is exceptionally clean with VS2 clarity, and dazzling with gorgeous, fiery brilliance! Cut by hand during the 1930s-1940s, it has wide facets that return big, bold sparkle, and an air of vintage glamour and charm.Already imbued with a lifetime of history and vitality, this diamond will make an engagement or right hand ring that is not only impressive and glamorous, but also enduring and meaningfully historied.
The diamond is graded VS2 for clarity. The few inclusions are much too small to see with the naked eye. Graded S-T for color, the diamond does show a subtle hint of warmth, as is typical for old European cuts. Part of its antique charm, the subtle color is typical of antique diamonds due to the locations of the early mines in the Cape region back when London and Antwerp were the center of the diamond trading world. Set in yellow or rose gold, the very subtle warmth would blend beautifully, and the diamond would appear brighter in contrast. Overall, this diamond has a striking presence, dazzling with bold sparkle and vividly colorful fire!
