Old European Round Cut Antique Diamond Engagement Rings

Old European Round Cut Diamond from GIA | Mark BroumandThe predecessor to the modern Round Brilliant, the old European round cut diamond engagement ring features a circular girdle on a 58-facet stone. The old European has larger, chunky facets which create a world of white and dark light contrast within the diamond, very much resembling a “checkerboard” pattern.  The larger facets also visually display slower light scintillation than the fiery and brilliant modern round diamonds.  Though the old European and modern round brilliant are similar in some ways, the overall facets and light behavior are very different in the two cuts.
