Diamond Source of Virginia has this exceptional 4.02-carat Old Mine Brilliant Cut loose diamond for sale. This old-fashioned diamond shape has a beautiful facet pattern that produces great brightness, sparkle, and a face-up appearance that is white with lots of fire.
Old Mine cut diamonds have become very hard to find and beautiful diamonds over four carats are becoming very rare. The shape, also known as the Old Miner, was first cut in the late seventeenth century and was the first shape to have all the facets of the present round diamond, but with a little different size and alignment. These differences in facet pattern produce the distinct old fashion appearance and charm. Other names for the Old Mine cut include a Full Cut Brilliant and the Triple Cut.
The Old Mine Cut got its name from the fact that the diamonds were typically sourced from the old mines located throughout India while most modern diamonds are from the relatively new mines in Africa, Australia, Russia, and Canada.
The specifications for the beautiful diamond are as follows:
Old Mine Brilliant, 4.02 carat, J color, VS1 clarity, depth 60.9%, table 56%, Good polish, Good symmetry, No fluorescence, Large culet, measurements 10.45 x 9.91 x 6.04 mm, and ratio 1.05 (EGL Diamond Certificate US 45000001D dated 2/38/07)
