This stunning 5.08 carat certified old European cut diamond is absolutely breathtaking in size with dazzling sparkle, and vividly colorful fire! Measuring a head turning 11.6mm in diameter, the diamond has a huge spread and a look much larger than a typical 5 carat round cut diamond. It is comparable in diameter to a round diamond of over 5.75 to 6 carats! Cut by hand a lifetime ago, this eye clean diamond is completely unique, guaranteed to be 100% conflict free, and full of old world charm. Already imbued with a century of life and longevity, this diamond will make an engagement ring, right hand ring, or pendant that is not only eye-catching and stunningly beautiful but also full of depth and history. With its jaw-dropping size, dazzling sparkle, and vivid fire, this diamond is sure to become an heirloom, bringing joy to your family for generations to come! Certified by EGL-USA, the diamond received a grade of SI2 for clarity. A great SI2, it is eye clean and there are no heavy inclusions. Even on a 5 carat size, the stone is remarkably clean! The inclusions are very thin and mostly white. They are located off to the side and they blend very nicely into the faceting. The table is also very clean. Even under close scrutiny with perfect eye-sight, they hide extremely well. The diamond is graded K for color, and it faces up quite beautifully. We thought this stone had a good chance for J color! Only when viewed at an angle, the body of the stone does show a very subtle hint of warmth, as is typical for old European cuts. However, when facing up the bright white reflections in its sparkle largely overwhelm any touch of color. Against skin tone it is difficult to notice the color and faces up white! There are no overtones, tinges or color shifts, etc...As an old European 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). The stone was hand cut in the 1930s and is a beautiful combination of old European cut and transitional cut. It was cut during a time when diamond cutters were experimenting with bigger tables and shorter crowns. EGL-USA classified the cut as an old transitional cut, but the diamond also displays the iconic old European cut features (large culet, wide facets, and a flower pattern on the pavilion). Overall, this diamond has a phenomenal presence with bold sparkle and eye catching size! This diamond is being sold loose, but it can be mounted upon request. This stunning beauty deserves the perfect mounting, and we would love to share our ideas for designs. We specialize in manufacturing and would be happy to create any mounting you can envision for this diamond. Full of old world charm and dazzlingly brilliant, this eye-catching diamond is an excellent choice for an enduring engagement or right hand ring. Once it is sold, we will not be able to replace it.
