This sparkly minimal diamond drop necklace features a wonderfully unique Old European cut diamond, rich with history.
Old European cut diamonds predate the modern brilliant cut that dominates the diamond industry today. They originated in Europe, evolving from old mine cut diamonds, which were popular in the late 18th centry. Made between 1890 and 1930, Old European diamonds were cut by hand – making each one truly unique. Because most lighting in that period came from candles, they were designed to maximize the sparkle under candlelight. Old European diamonds are characteristic of larger facets, a smaller table, and a higher crown, giving it a distinctly different look and feel than modern diamonds.
This antique Old European Cut diamond carries with it a history of craftsmanship and the true individuality of a hand cut stone. Fabricated and finished by hand in our Austin studio, this necklace carries on that tradition.
