Old Mine cut diamonds offer the best investment diamonds due to their increasing rarity and especially in these large sizes. Cut by hand and without the aid of modern machinery each Old Mine cut diamond has its own individual charm and character. Old Mine cut diamonds are not being cut any more (having been superseded by the bland characterless modern brilliant cuts) making them superb investment diamonds as well as being unique (each stone being different) and therefore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 Mine cut diamonds are the diamonds of choice or Royalty all over the world.
A stunning piece of investment jewellery which you would be VERY hard to find another and especially not at this uniquely low price!
The ring size is N 1/2 which we can resize for free (please read our terms and conditions at the bottom regarding ring resizing).
This is truly a unique diamond and ring and you will not find another for anywhere near this price. For details on diamond cuts please see my guide (details given below about how to find it)
Offered for sale in exceptional condition and for only £2850.
Please note old Mine cut diamonds are deeper and have a thicker girdle and higher table than modern brilliant cuts therefore they measure differently in mm sizes (you can not use a diamond size gauge against these stones - not that you should use one anyway as it is crude method employed by amateurs. Please get all your diamonds appraised at proper jewellers if you want an accurate and detailed appraisal!). The GIA calculations for Old cut stones is length x width x depth x 0.0077 (this factor is 0.0061 for modern brilliant cut stones).
This ring should be worn enjoyed but also viewed as an investment piece as it will only increase in value (something most modern jewellery will simply not do).
It will of course come in a quality ring box as you would expect from a quality jeweller.
All our pictures are taken with a Macro zoom lens to allow for very detailed inspection of the ring and we only use natural day light. We DO NOT use LED lighting to enhance the pictures on any of our jewellery (this is a method used in most high street jewellers so be careful and always take stones outside to view in natural lighting conditions). This helps to ensure you are getting the ring as it is advertised and without any fabrications. Other sellers do not do this and try to hide the true facts with less than good photos and inaccurate descriptions. When you buy from R.D.Brown and Son's you truly get a superb deal and excellent customer service.
We have a wide range of quality items at low prices. Please take the time to have a look through our shop.
All the stones we sell including our diamonds are 100% natural earth mined.
