Old Cut Diamond Platinum Engagement Ring
Simple and elegant half carat 150 year old, old cut diamond remounted in a handmade platinum setting.
One way of avoiding conflict or blood diamonds is to reuse ones from old antique jewellery so, not only is it eco friendly, it's a way of ensuring you don't inadvertently support modern day corrupt, diamond producing regimes of which there so many - despite the Kimberley Process.
Old cut diamonds are slightly different from modern day brilliant cuts, being deeper, not completely round and with a more glassy appearance. They arguably have more fire than modern day brilliant cuts.
This diamond is a nice colour and clarity and is 0.51ct in weight.
The ring is currently a Australian/UK size M (US size 6) but could easily be resized.
