The antique European round cut diamond ring is treasured for its scarcity and reminiscence of a vintage, romantic past era. It was a transitional cut that fell between the Old Mine and modern day round brilliant. Though many authentic antique diamonds are scarce, Mark Broumand carries many authentic antique round cut stones.
Old European cuts are identified using these criteria:
- Table size: less than or equal to 53 percent
- Crown angle: greater than or equal to 40 degrees
- Lower half facet length: less than or equal to 60 percent
- Culet size: slightly large or larger
The light dispersion in this diamond cut was more even when radiating off the culet and drew light down into the diamond as opposed to reflecting light out the top. This cut was prevalent from the 1800s until the Art Deco Period and the round cutting style kept evolving until the 1950s, when it would have a larger table, longer lower-half facets, and a smaller culet.
