Pretty sure mine’s an Old European Cut. The jeweler said it was an Old Mine Cut, but those tend to look more like cushion cuts and mine is round. My FI’s grandma gave it to him. It was part of a brooch that has been in the family for some time. She’s currently writing up the story of the brooch for us.

Mine isn’t an OEC, it’s an old mine cut but still similar!

smw1031:  I love it!  Can I be cheeky and ask the size of the stone and your ring size?

GemmaBella:  Thank you for the compliment 

I’d be jumping with joy here if you ladies with around half carat OECs would share more pictures (and possibly close ups?) of your rings. I haven’t been able to drool over similar size old cuts as mine (0.52ct) so I am so excited to finally see some! Thank you for sharing them and please keep the pictures coming! 

Here’s another picture of mine, now showing a bit of the patterning.

So many lovely rings here, but your stone/setting/prongs are so cool!

Here is my OEC ring! Belonged to my great grandmother. It is 3.4 carats, S-T color, in its original platinum setting (I didn’t even need to have it sized!).
