Susimoo originally posted this amazing OMC custom ring on the Show Me the Bling forum at PriceScope. Wow the colors this gorgeous antique produces are phenomenal. I love to think about the history of antique stones, where they have been, who has owned them. I wonder who has gotten to enjoy this pastel wonderland.
You can recognize an old mine cut diamond by its squarish shape: it has 58 facets like today’s modern round brilliant cut diamond, but that’s where the similarity ends. In addition to a different shape, an old mine cut has different diamond proportions: it typically has a smaller table, larger culet and higher crown. It also has short lower half facets and a girdle that is very thin in places and, as a result of these factors, an old mine cut diamond has a very distinctive look. (from GIA)
There was some deep sadness in Susimoo’s life during the purchase process for this ring, and I hope that this beauty restored some joy for her. Losing a sibling is incredibly hard, and we are wishing Susimoo belated condolences.
Old World Diamonds did a great job with sourcing this stone, it’s an antique and thus has some character; it’s still stunning!
