This 0.46ct Old European cut certified diamond is brilliantly white, exceptionally clean, and dazzlingly brilliant. Cut by hand a lifetime ago, this very high quality F VS1 diamond is completely unique, guaranteed to be 100% conflict free, and full of old world charm. Old European cuts tend to have a bit of warmth, so it is uncommon to find one this bright white! It displays lively sparkle, and, at 5.2mm in diameter, it has a great spread. It is comparable in look to a typical old cut of 0.55ct or more! Historied and full of life, this diamond will make an engagement or right hand ring that is not only excellent in quality and dazzlingly beautiful but also imbued with depth and longevity. Certified by EGL-USA, the diamond received a clarity grade of VS1. Completely eye clean, even under 10x magnification it is nearly impossible to find any inclusions! Graded F for color, only a couple very subtle shades away from perfect D color, this diamond is very bright white and colorless. It is a rare example of a bright white Old European cut. The diamond’s hand cut facets are charmingly wide, creating 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. As a result, the measurements appear similar to a modern round, hence EGL determined it to be a round brilliant cut. However, these shortcomings in EGL’s formula do not reflect the fact that this is a truly old diamond with old style faceting on the pavilion, a large culet, and flower pattern visible through the stone. The diamond is 100% natural and has not received any treatments or enhancements of any kind. 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. Excellent in quality, full of old world charm, and dazzlingly brilliant, this diamond is an excellent choice for an enduring engagement or right hand ring.
