Victorian 1.5ct Old Mine Cut Diamond Solitaire Ring

The old mine cut - known as old miners - was developed in the 18th Century, cut by hand into a rounded square (or in this case rectangle) they feature a high table and large open culet. The relatively large triangular facets allow for bright and colourful flashes when they catch the light. This one's set in a minimal c.1900 claw mount, modelled in 18k gold and platinum with elegant pinched shoulders.
