1.25ct (8.20 x 5.22mm). This breathtaking 1.25ct vintage pear cut certified diamond offers bright white F color, a completely eye clean appearance, and a unique and glamorous vintage cut.This is a very rare old mine pear shape diamond that was cut before the turn of the 20th century. It likely belonged to a member of high society based on the age and rarity of the cut, as few could afford diamonds during the late 1800s.
This beautiful diamond has broad facets, bold sparkle, and an air of old world charm. It is rare, completely unique, and guaranteed to be ethically sourced. It is an excellent choice for a unique and meaningfully historied engagement ring, right hand ring, or pendant. Certified by EGL-USA, the diamond is graded F for color.
Bright white and colorless, it is just two very subtle shades away from perfect D color (we had expected E color from the lab). This diamond will stand out brightly against any background and in any setting. The diamond is graded SI1 for clarity, and it is 100% eye clean. The inclusions are very small, and they blend perfectly into the sparkle, completely invisible to the naked eye.
The diamonds cut is beautifully unique, executed by hand a lifetime in the past. Old cut fancy shapes are quite rare, which makes this antique pear cut diamond a truly rare and special find full of history and vintage charm!
The diamond has a lively brilliance and a gorgeous presence! This striking beauty deserves the perfect mounting, and we would love to share our ideas for custom designs!
