Since the mid-19th century, dozens of these modern alchemists have been injured in accidents and explosions while attempting to manufacture diamonds. Although any ring produced before 1950 can be considered to be an antique, there are five main time periods commonly represented in the antique engagement ring market. The Georgian period (1760-1837), the Victorian period (1835-1900), the Art Nouveau period (1890-1919), the Art Deco period (1920-1935) and the Art Retro period (1930-1950) are all available in the antique jewelry market.
Explanation of Cut, Color and Clarity of This Diamond
Cut Quality We determine the cut quality based on simplified formulas that take into account diamond's depth, table and proportions. If some of this information is not available we are unable to estimate the quality of the diamond's cut.
Color When mounted, G color grade diamonds will appear colorless except to the trained eye. G color may be noticeable when compared to diamonds of better grades. Diamonds of G color grade offer excellent value. For an excellent value in a diamond with no noticeable color to the unaided eye, G color diamond is the right choice.
Clarity VS1 diamonds have very small inclusions. Usually an experienced grader does not find any internal faults, but does not have great difficulties to see the inclusions when he moves the diamond a little from side to side. Typical inclusions of this group are small, light clouds or small light cracks on the girdle.
