This head turning 4.5 carat Old Mine cut diamond is breathtaking in size, 100% eye clean, and dazzlingly brilliant with vividly colorful fire! The cut on this diamond is absolutely fantastic with an impeccable cushion shape, bold sparkle and magnificent fire! Its impeccable antique cushion shape was masterfully cut by hand by Victorian era artisans over a hundred years in the past. The cut quality on this diamond is among the best of the old cuts we currently have available! There are some old mine cuts which look flat or lifeless, but this one is full of brilliance that must be seen in person to be fully appreciated! The original cushion brilliant cut, the diamond has a very desirable shape that bridges the classic artisan work of the past with modern sophistication. A true antique, this rare diamond is completely unique, guaranteed to be 100% conflict free, and full of old world charm. The diamond has a truly phenomenal presence! Already imbued with more than a century of life, this diamond will bring depth and longevity as well as stunning size and dazzling beauty to an engagement or right hand ring. Graded SI1 for clarity, this 4.49ct diamond is 100% eye clean. An excellent SI1, the primary inclusion is a thin white feather. It is nearly transparent and located on the very outside of the stone, near the girdle. It is hard to find even with 10x because it is on the far outside edge. It stone’s single inclusion is completely invisible to the naked eye. Our first impression of the diamond was that it was VS clarity. Graded M-N for color, the diamond has a gorgeous face up that shows a very light hint of warmth. Part of its antique charm, the subtle color is typical of old cut diamonds due to the locations of the early mines. The sparkle helps tremendously to give them a bright appearance, and it is difficult to notice the color against skin tone. Set in yellow or rose gold, the very subtle warmth would blend beautifully, and the diamond would appear brighter in contrast. As an Old Mine cut diamond, it has wide, hand cut facets which return exceptionally big and bright sparkle as well as captivating flashes of colorful fire (rainbow refractions). You will absolutely fall in love with this stunning beauty’s brilliance, fire, and antique cut! Absolutely one of a kind, excellent in quality, and truly dazzling, this gorgeous diamond is sure to become an heirloom, bringing joy to your family for generations to come.
