When old intersects new, magic is made. With the newest collection, we have encapsulated just that - vintage romance, meets modern whimsy. The Old Euro collection has completely redefined what a timeless piece of jewelry is. Using century-old European cut diamonds in modern settings and modern cut gems in vintage settings, this line of rings is truly one-of-a-kind.
Let's go back, WAY BACK...
Between the 1890s and 1930s, Old European Cut diamonds were 100% hand cut making them each completely unique, with its own story to tell. Mother nature created, human hands perfected, these intricately crafted gems were specifically made to shine in candlelit settings, which is why they were cut with dispersion or “fire” of multicolor reflections always in mind. This is the main feature and cut differentiation which distinguishes an Old European Cut diamond from a Modern Round Brilliant Cut diamond; the more widely popular gem used in modern jewelry for its sparkle and brilliance and cut mostly for fluorescence light to show its best features.
