This striking, substantial, and 100% eye clean 1.06 carat Old Mine cut certified diamond has charmingly wide hand cut facets that sparkle vibrantly and have spectacularly vivid fire! It is cut in an antique cushion shape, a very sought after shape that bridges the classic artisan work of the past with modern sophistication. Cut by hand during the Victorian era, this rare diamond is completely unique, guaranteed to be 100% conflict free, and full of antique charm. Gathering life for more than a century, this diamond will bring depth and longevity as well as dazzling beauty to an engagement or right hand ring. Certified by EGL-USA, the diamond is strictly graded J for color. It is a top J. We had expected I color when submitting to the lab as the stone faces up truly white! Only when viewed at an angle, the body of the stone does show the slightest hint of warmth, as is typical for diamonds from its time period. When facing up, the bright white reflections in its sparkle largely overwhelm any touch of color. The diamond received a clarity grade of SI2, and it is 100% eye clean! The primary inclusion is thin and transparent so it blend perfectly into the sparkle and faceting. As an Old Mine cut, the diamond has wide, hand cut facets which sparkle magnificently with vivid flashes of colorful fire! This is the original Cushion Brilliant cut and is highly sought after as cushion brilliant cuts are much harder to find than cushion modified cuts. With its bold and eye catching sparkle as well as its historied provenance, this diamond truly has a singular presence! This diamond is being sold loose, but it can be mounted upon request. Please browse our collection of semi-mounts or inquire about a one of a kind custom design. Full of old world charm, vivid fire, and vibrant sparkle, this diamond provides an enduring connection to the past and is an excellent choice for a meaningful engagement or right hand ring. Once it has sold, we will not be able to replace it.
