"Will you?" he said, holding out the little box.
"Yes," she replied, holding out her hand. He slipped it onto her finger.
Perfect.

Old cut diamonds can be dangerous. The more of them you see, the more of them you desire to own. Whereas modern brilliant cut diamonds can be nice and sparkly, old European cuts like this one are more like individual works of art. Hand cut by master craftsmen who spent decades honing their skills; these cutters used no computers, no lasers, they used their eyes, their experience and their hands, often cutting with tools they had made themselves. The result is a diamond with a uniqueness of character that simply cannot be found in todays modern cut stones. This European ring was made in about 1930 and showcases the simplicity of the Edwardian style anchored firmly by an Old European cushion cut diamond with large cut facets that cause it to flash with slow and stunning sparks of colorful fire.

Hand crafted of platinum, this fantastic Engagement ring holds a chunky diamond which measures 6.3x6.3x5.2 mm and weighs about .880 carats, it is a very lively stone, about an F/G color Si1 diamond.
