Antique diamond jewelry owes much of its appeal to old-fashion cutting techniques. Before diamond cutting became an exact science, the fashioning of diamond rough was an art. Each finished jewel reflected the labor, and talent, of the craftsman who shaped it.
Antique diamonds are a favorite of those looking for something unique. They are often said to have a softer, more romantic glow than precision-cut modern stones. Their popularity has surged in recent years, so much so that modern cutters have started to fashion new versions of old cuts, such as the Cushion and the Royal Asscher.
