If the 4 Cs of Diamond Quality are Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight, then antique diamonds offer a 5th C: Character. With a unique play of light due to their hand-cut nature, each antique diamond is truly one-of-a-kind. The appeal of these rare diamonds lies in their broad facet patterns, their unique silhouettes, and their ability to dazzle in low and modern lighting conditions. Unlike their modern counterparts, which are cut with modern machinery and to exacting specifications, there are only a finite number of antique diamonds available, making them scarce and highly sought after. Repurposing antique diamonds also reduces environmental impact, which is something we feel very strongly about.
