shop Old Mine Cut Diamonds
Studied and individually cut by eye and hand by the structure of the crystal from the 18th to late 19th century. Beloved for their unique and somewhat asymmetrical shapes, they are often described as “cut by candlelight”—referring to the diamonds’ large facets, and taller pavilion and table that catch the flicker of flames and light. Old mine cut diamonds are traditionally square-shaped with a classic, sliced-bottom that creates a window to see through the table further enhancing the diamonds’ sparkle.
