Advances in stone cutting led to slightly cushion-shaped Old Mine cut and Old European cut diamonds — both predecessors of modern round brilliant cut diamonds.
It wasn't just advances in stone cutting that gave antique diamonds their distinctive sparkle. The introduction of the six-prong Tiffany setting in 1886 popularized the diamond engagement ring.
This led to an increase in popularity of the solitaire diamond ring, which replaced simple gold bands as the go-to choice for engagement and betrothal rings during the Victorian era.
