About

Old Mine-cut diamonds were fashionable between 1800 and 1905, an era epitomized by Alice in Wonderland, women's suffrage, and Charles Darwin. Old Mine-cut diamonds represent one of the first attempts to maximize sparkle in shaped diamonds. Diamond cutters of the 19th century had no electricity like they do today " this diamond was likely cut using a hand-powered cutting machine. The diamond industry had just begun the path to standardization, introducing a demand for symmetrical stones " something that was difficult to achieve through hand cutting. It was discovered that a square cushion shape, the end result of the Old Mine cut, maximized symmetry and sparkle while minimizing loss of weight during cutting. Old Mine-cut diamonds have a small table, high crown, deep pavilion, and open culet.
