Certified by GIA, this gorgeous and high quality 0.92ct old transitional cut diamond has exceptional VS1 clarity and faces up beautifully white! Measuring 6.31 - 6.24mm it has a great spread and a larger than typical look for its weight! Bridging the gap between old European cuts and modern round brilliants, old transitional cut diamonds were produced for a very short period of time and are exceptionally rare. Cut entirely by hand in the late 1920’s to 1930’s, this diamond is charmingly vintage, completely unique, and guaranteed to be 100% conflict free! Excellent in quality and imbued with meaningful history, this dazzling diamond would make an elegant and enduring engagement or right hand ring! This 0.92ct diamond is certified by GIA. Graded VS1 for clarity under GIA’s rigorous standards, it appears completely clean under a jewelers loupe. Graded I for color, the diamond faces up beautifully white. It shows no warmth on the face up. The diamond displays dazzling, bright sparkle as well as vividly colorful flashes of fire. As an old transitional cut, the diamond has old style facets and bold sparkle similar to an old European cut but with a smaller culet and proportions similar to modern standards. It absolutely retains the unique charm of a hand cut stone. Because the diamond was cut during a period when diamond cutters were experimenting with bigger tables and shorter crowns, the diamond has dimensions similar to a modern round. Hence GIA’s formula determined it to be 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, a small open culet, and flower pattern on the pavilion. For this reason, GIA graded the cut against round brilliant cut standards, and the diamond received a cut grade which does indicate how much sparkle this diamond has! The diamond has a truly outstanding play of light with phenomenal brilliance and fire, much better than GIA’s grade implies (since it is being graded against a different cut). The appearance is fantastic and overall, this high quality diamond is very bright with dazzling sparkle! 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, this stunning diamond offers an enduring connection to the past! It is an excellent choice for a gorgeous and historied engagement or right hand ring.
