2.20ct Old European Cut Diamond Cluster Ring in Platinum
European Cut diamonds are one of our favorite cuts of diamond. Made fashionable in the 19th century, they were an "advancement" over the Old Mine cut and a precursor to the Modern Round Brilliant. They tend to be more round than mine cuts while maintaining the chunky facets, which adds a depth of character that modern stones generally do not to have.
This dazzling ring, likely a remount of Mom's or Grandma's stones in the 1940s, contains 9 European cut diamonds organized in a symmetrical, graduated pinwheel. Anchored by a 0.75ct stone, an additional 1.45cts of diamonds orbit the the center. The diamonds are J color, VS2-SI1 clarity.
