I was wondering about the size of the culet in the older cut stones. Is there any correlation between how big the culet is, and how old the stone is? In other words, do older stones have larger culets, and the ones that were more recent (although still old European cut) have smaller or no open culets? Or was the culet size just dependent on who was cutting the stone? The ring I just posted has a very small open culet; I have seem some that were very large as well. Just curious if anyone has seen a correlation of any kind.
