Vintage Emerald Cut Diamond

A few days ago I joined a discussion that was ongoing between a few colleagues in the Diamond Exchange. One was suggesting to another how to recut an old Emerald Cut into a modern albeit more elongated Emerald Cut.

I asked if I could see the Diamond they were discussing. Once holding this gem in my hands, I knew I needed to persuade its owner from re-cutting such a beautiful old Emerald Cut. I purchased it and decided to offer it here for sale.

This estimated circa 1910-1930 — 4.40 carat vintage Emerald Cut was cut to a superb step-cut faceting design while keeping to its true contour and shape which popularized the Art Deco era. The step facets were cut & polished to correct facet proportions and configuration which even in present day is hard to locate.

This Diamond displays a very bright appearance while it emits beautiful large elongated flashes when in motion. As was popular in the Art-Deco era, its elegant shape consists of a 1:1.17 ratio, wider than usual corner breaks, small culet (Kozibe) and a higher crown height which completes the look and feel of the era.

Measuring 10.11 x 8.65mm. GIA graded the color as an “J” and its clarity as a VS1.
A beautiful overall combination for such a large vintage Emerald Cut.
