All engagement rings tell a story, but some are more romantic than others.
Choosing an antique engagement ring like an antique cushion cut will assuredly come with a charming story rich in history. Antique cushion cuts were made long before modern technology and commissioned by royal families. Developed in 19th Century Europe, the cut of the diamond had no specific dimensions but generally supported a rectangular dimension with slightly curved edges creating a soft cushion presentation.
It is within the Old Mine Cut that cushion cuts retain their roots and identity. These diamonds were generally cut in the late 1800s to the early 1900s. These one-of-a-kind vintage stones possess an unmistakable bright and bold scintillation unlike any modern cushion cut stone you can purchase today. That’s because these diamonds were cut by hand using only candlelight to reflect the maximum amount of light cast on every facet. In addition to its charming faceting, antique cut diamonds are generally much flatter thus giving the appearance of a diamond 30-50% larger in comparison to its modern counterparts.
These highly sought after vintage stones hold stories of royalty, romance and mystery of ancient eras. Chase Gregory Jewelers are here to help you find the perfect stone so you can tell her exactly what’s in your heart.
