This ring really is unique. The diamonds have very large facets that continually bounce off big chunks of light and sparkle. If you love old cut diamonds you will fall in love with this ring. The center cushion cut diamond has a very high crown as do the diamonds on each side. They give the ring a fabulous 3D effect from all angles. It would be impossible to replicate this ring with flat top modern cut diamonds. Old European cuts like these are each individual and unique works of art. Each one has been hand cut buy an artisan diamond cutter who spent decades learning and practising their craft. These diamond cutters had no computers and no lasers to assist them. They used their eyes and experience which resulted in diamonds with uniqueness of character that simply cannot be found in today's modern precision cut stones.

There are 15 large diamonds in the timeless setting. The diamonds are like looking into deep ponds of water. They are not bland white like modern colourless diamonds. The diamonds have the warm soft glow of diamonds in candle light.

The ring has been brilliantly refurbished. A new shank was added around 50 years ago so it is thick and strong. It is in excellent condition which reflects the superior craftsmanship of the jeweller who made it originally and the jeweller who did the refurbishment.

This ring is big enough to be a statement right hand ring or an exceptionally impressive engagement ring (big enough to work really well as a combined engagement/wedding ring). The ring is very comfortable to wear and beautifully balanced. The underside of the ring is open and super easy to clean (if you are like me and never take your rings off!). If you have big hands it will look large and if you small hands it will look enormous.

Getting Married? Wondering how to add a wedding band? I have a ring of similar size as my combined engagement and wedding ring. I figured why have two small rings when I could have one awesome ring! I took the ring off just before the wedding ceremony and then my husband put the ring back on my finger as we were married. I am often stopped and asked about the stunning and unusually large ring on my left hand and I love being individual!

Most items in my store were selected because they contain old cut diamonds. For me they are like ‘love at first sight’. Not bland and sterile like modern cut diamonds. Old cut diamonds are individual with deep sparkle and big wide facets that bounce rainbow colours. They have a special elegant sparkle reflecting the light that has moved within them for decades. Old diamond cuts return light in colourful rich blocky patterns while newly cut stones return light in needle like shards. For me its no competition and the old cut diamonds win every time.
