OLD CUT DIAMOND VS ROUND BRILLIANT CUT.

We get asked by clients commonly what is the difference between an antique diamond and ‘new’ diamond. The answer is quite simply the overall sparkle.

The round shape has existed since the late 19th century during the development of new cutting technologies.

The old cut was a favorite of the Victorian, Edwardian, and Art Deco eras that came shortly after its introduction in the late 1800’s. With the most productive African diamond mines yet to be discovered, contemporary cutters had a much lower quantity of rough diamonds to work with than we do in today’s market, often of a lesser clarity or colour than we are used to today as well.

The old cut was designed to over come this by hand cutting stones to increase colour and clarity. While round diamonds today are cut for brilliance, the old cut was cut for colour, using its unique faceting structure to bring out the best in each individual stone.

As technology advanced, diamond cutting techniques changed the placement and proportion of a diamond’s facets. Tables became larger, culets became smaller, and facets became longer and leaner. These changes led to the creation of what is now the world’s most popular diamond shape, the modern round brilliant cut, which was developed to maximise the light and brilliance of a stone.
