If it is modern, the cutter was either drunk, or the rough was not optimal with its inclusion placement :lol:
That was my first thought as well ... but the more I look at it, the more I wonder if it could be a VERY early attempt at an asscher cut.

@chanieish I wonder how a diamond with its pavilion cut like that would look. :think:

And just FYI/FTR, I am not considering this diamond for a purchase. Rather, it just genuinely intrigued me sheerly out of curiousity ... once my eyes straightened back out. :lol:

I legit think this may be an early (old cut) asscher attempt ... I just can’t believe someone cut that with a straight face otherwise. :eek2:

just a badly cut step cut.
Spin the diamond and look at the pavilion and you will see why,
Super long steep p1-2 with little difference in angle p1-3 and then a shallow p4 with angle variations n/s vs e/w relative to how its photographed.

But hey, it’s got a GIA report. o_O

Is this possibly a legit ‘old cut’? I think I see a tiny culet. It just looks too crooked & wonky to be a modern attempt at an emerald or asscher cut, to me.

It looks like The Hall of Mirrors at the Fun House! You young ones probably don’t even know what I’m talking about. They would have them at carnivals. They would make me so sick! :sick:

The GIA report says it's an EC, is it even the same stone?? The diagram on the GIA doesn't look like it...

Oh my that is wonky! I’m suspicious of the claim that it is old but agree with you that it could not be a modern stone. Perhaps someone tried a recut on an old stone? Could you perhaps purchase and then have it examined by an appraiser to get their opinion. Also would you recut it?

@caf The seller didn’t represent it as an old cut; rather, that was my thought/suspicion. It’s not a stone I am actually interested in buying; I came across it browsing and thought it was rather ... interesting.

What stinks is it has a kicken crown, if it had a matching pavilion and weighed around 2.15ct..........
Could this diamond have it’s pavilion recut while leaving the crown intact or would it have to be a full ‘top to bottom’ recut?
