Estate Platinum ~15.73 Transitional-cut Diamond Ring
Estate Platinum Transitional-cut VS Quality Diamond Ring with center ~15.73cttw. Round Diamond Brilliant and framed by two pairs of VS Quality Straight Diamond Baguettes on its shoulders @~.60cttw., creating the illusion that the center diamond is elongated. Diamond was slightly modified about a dozen years ago from a 15.87cttw. Old mine-cut with open culet to bring out the intensity of the hearts and arrows that dazzle the eye and has the magic and scintillation that is intrinsic to old material. The center diamond is ~16.5mm , each baguette ~6x1mm. The color of this antique diamond touted in traditional diamond circles as "Cape" is known for its warmth and slight yellowish tint, which can be observed through the underside (pavilion) of the diamond. The intact open culet (bottom point of the diamond) from when it was originally faceted over 100 years ago allows light to wash out of the bottom of the diamond. The benefit of the open culet is that the diamond faces up white.
