This gorgeous and high quality 0.51ct Old European cut diamond is certified by GIA and offers brilliant white F color and excellent VS1 clarity as well as dazzling sparkle and vivid fire. Old European cut diamonds tend to show a touch of warmth, so this bright white diamond’s combination of cut and color makes it quite rare! Cut by hand a lifetime ago, the diamond is completely unique, guaranteed to be 100% conflict free, and full of old world charm. Imbued with history and longevity, this diamond is ready for a new chapter in its journey, bringing its illustrious past as well as its dazzling beauty to an engagement or right hand ring. Certified by GIA, the diamond received a clarity grade of VS1. Even with the aid of a 10x magnified jewelers loupe, it is difficult to find any inclusions! Graded F for color, it is exceptionally white and will stand out against any background. 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 GIA’s formula determined it as a round brilliant cut. However, these shortcomings in GIA’s formula do not reflect the fact that this is a truly old diamond with old style faceting and a large culet. For this reason, GIA graded the cut against round brilliant cut standards, and the diamond received a Fair cut grade. However, the diamond has a beautiful play of light with lively brilliance and fire, much better than GIA’s grade implies. This diamond is being sold loose, but it can be mounted upon request. You can browse our collection of semi-mounts or inquire about a one of a kind custom design. Charmingly vintage and rare as well as stunningly beautiful, this high quality diamond is an excellent choice for an enduring engagement or right hand ring. Once it is sold, we certainly will not be able to replace
