Vintage style jewelry is a very strong trend. Everyone is recognizing the timeless style of the jewelry from the past.
Whether you purchase a ring that is an actual vintage heirloom or a ring that is vintage style but newly created, adding a center old European cut diamond truly gives you a piece of diamond history.
Old Mine cut diamonds are cut with a blocky appearance and large facets. This cut dates back to the 1700s and was prevalent in the Georgian and Victorian eras. The old European cut possesses many of the characteristics of the old mine cut, but is a little more refined and more round in it's appearance. It dates back to the 1800s and was used in the Victorian, Edwardian and Art Nouveau eras. In the early 1900s the diamond industry with the aid of new technology created the modern round brilliant cut to produce maximum fire and brilliance. These diamonds became popular in the Art Deco era through today.
