Measuring 8.4mm in diameter, the diamond has a great spread and a larger than typical look for its weight! Bridging the gap between old 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 1920s to 1940s, this diamond is charmingly vintage, completely unique, and guaranteed to be 100% conflict free! Already imbued with life and longevity, this diamond will make an engagement or right hand ring that is not only eye-catching and stunningly beautiful but also full of depth and history. The diamond is certified by GIA, the worlds premier gemological authority.
Graded SI1 for clarity under GIAs rigorous standards, the diamond is 100% eye clean! The few inclusions are too small to see with the naked eye. Graded L for color under GIAs very strict standards, the diamond faces up beautifully with very very subtle warmth. The very subtle body warmth of this diamond would not be noticeable at all when set in yellow or rose gold.
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 GIAs formula determined it to be a round brilliant cut. However, these shortcomings in GIAs 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 GIAs grade implies (since it is being graded against a different cut). Overall, it is a magnificent stone, rare and dazzlingly vibrant! You may browse our collection of semi-mounts or inquire about a one of a kind custom design.
