This diamond is simply stunning and in terms of investment is possibly the best I have seen. Old cut diamonds offer the best investment diamonds due to their increasing rarity and especially in these large sizes and even more so in this colour. Cut by hand and without the aid of today's modern machinery each Old cut diamond has its own individual charm and character. Old cut diamonds are not being cut any more (having been superseded by the bland characterless modern brilliant cuts) making them superb investment diamonds as well as being unique (each stone being different) and therefore personal to the owner. Something that I truly believe is one of there greatest assets. No two are ever the same....just like the people that wear them. It is no surprise that Old cut diamonds are the diamonds of choice or Royalty all over the world.
It would make the most stunning engagement ring or simply to make someone feel VERY special (even if that person is you).
