Old European Cut Diamonds

My favourite cut of diamond is the Old European Cut (OEC). They have a romantic and dream like sparkle and glow. Old European Cut diamonds are the predecessor of the Round Brilliant and were very popular in Art Deco rings. However, the cuts of OEC diamonds are deeper and chunkier, whereas the round brilliant cuts are much more splintery. Old European Cuts are all hand cut which makes each antique OEC diamond unique, and they are also usually warmer in colour. I find the warm chunky OEC’s breathtaking.
