A 1.70-carat Old European brilliant-cut diamond takes center stage in this magnificent ring. Set in platinum and surrounded by lustrous onyx bordered with accent diamonds, this rare diamond displays all the fire and personality of this coveted cut.
Used until the early 20th century, the Old European cut was executed entirely by hand. It comprises 58 facets that follow the original shape of the rough diamond, meaning that the cut is "made to fit" a particular stone. The diamond cutter relied upon his expert eye to determine the exact placement of each facet, taking advantage of a diamond's natural qualities to ensure each and every cut reflected the greatest amount of light through the jewel.
