This elegant, very high quality, and quite substantial 2.73ct vintage emerald cut diamond has excellent VVS2 clarity, and beautifully white color. Cut by hand a lifetime in the past, this GIA certified diamond has an utterly unique and beautiful cut. At 8.6mm, it has a very large, sleek look and vibrant, bold sparkle! With measurements very close to square, the cut has a look very similar to the sophisticated asscher cut. It is right on the border between an asscher and emerald. It is slightly elongated, hence the Emerald cut distinction by GIA. We will refer to it as emerald for this listing though it can absolutely be called an asscher as well. This diamond’s rare cut and provenance make it a very special find. The diamond was originally cut sometime between the late Art Deco era to early mid century. The diamond is certified by GIA, the world’s premiere gemological authority. Exceptional in quality and imbued with meaningful history, this dazzling diamond would make an elegant and enduring engagement or right hand ring! The diamond is certified by GIA, the world’s premier gemological authority. Under GIA’s rigorous standards, the diamond received an excellent clarity grade of VVS2. The diamond is completely loupe clean; it is impossible to find any inclusions under 10x magnification. A tabletop microscope is needed to see the tiniest possible inclusion as this stone is near flawless! This is a particularly important point for step cut diamonds (such as emerald cuts) as they tend to be less forgiving when it comes to inclusions. The diamond is graded I for color, and it faces up beautifully white with absolutely no yellow. With GIA’s strict standards, I color diamonds appear quite bright white. The diamond’s vintage emerald cut is beautifully elegant, and it displays a gorgeous, mesmerizing play of light! Measuring 8.6 x 7.9mm the diamond has an excellent spread and a large look for its weight. With its exceptional quality, substantial size, and refined look, this diamond is sure to become an heirloom, bringing joy to your family for generations to come. Excellent in clarity, beautifully white, gorgeously brilliant, and utterly elegant, this diamond is a perfect choice for an engagement or right hand ring! The diamond is being sold loose, but it can be mounted upon request. This striking and exceptionally high quality beauty deserves the perfect mounting, and we would love to share our ideas for custom designs! This cut is very unique, and once this diamond sells we will not be able to replace it.
