Antique Diamond Cuts

Rose cut diamonds, first introduced in the 1500s have much fewer facets than the modern brilliant cut. typically, up to 24 facets, it has this smooth appeal, less fire or blink than a modern cut. The bottom of the diamond is flat while the top is domed shaped and the facets meet at a point.

Another antique cut, OLD MINE cut is cushioned shaped diamond with a high crown, deep pavilion,and large culet.
