Our Antique Diamonds

Three beautiful genuine antique cuts, Old European, Old Mine, & Antique Cushion.

Old European


The Old European diamond has a very small table, a heavy crown, and great overall depth. This diamond cut was the fore-runner of the modern brilliant cut. Like the modern round brilliant, the Old European diamond has a circular round shape.

Old Mine


Old mine cut diamonds date back to the 1830's and were common up until the turn of the century. They are the earliest form of the modern brilliant cut. Old mine diamonds are mostly off-round in shape with a high crown, small table and open culet.

Antique Cushion


The cushion cut diamond was one of the most popular cuts of diamonds ever. For more than 70 years from 1830 to the turn of the century this was how diamonds were cut. The cushion cut has a rectangular to square shape with rounded corners.

Hi Adam! I feel bad not getting back with you sooner about these earrings! I just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying them. They really are the perfect size, and like you said, have gone from huge to just right in about the space of a week ;) I was so nervous buying them but Im so glad I did now. The only thing I dont like is that I have had numerous people ask me where I got such nice fakes! I figure thats an ok problem to have :) Thanks again for a beautiful product and an easy, stress free transaction.

Selling Diamonds?

Old World Diamonds buys all types of diamonds. We buy both antique and modern diamonds of all shapes, sizes and qualities. The best way to start is to tell us everything you know about your diamond like shape, weight, color and clarity. If your diamond has a grading certificate such as EGL, GIA or AGS, this will make the process very easy. We can offer you a quote just be viewing a copy of your certificate. Please keep in mind appraisals generally show a much higher value than what your diamond will be worth in the second hand market appraisals. Appraisals are mostly meant for insurance replacement reasons. Old World Diamonds makes it very simple and safe to ship your diamond to us for evaluation. We will wire you your money the same day or overnight you a check! Please call or email with any questions.
