Timeless as it is stunning, the antique cut diamond engagement and anniversary ring has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years. The style of cutting used for the antique cut diamond is approached in a way that the proportions of the stone were shaped by the light coming through the crown, or top of the diamond.
