Wow! Sounds amazing! Old cuts are the best!!! (my antique wedding band which is on the way is going to be small, OMC diamonds).

Take a look here to get some ideas of what your one of a kind stone might look like. They are cut by hand, so they vary a lot and that’s part of their charm:

Yay! I have a 2.86 OEC. It was appraised as a K in color and has so much buttery gorgeousness but still faces up white. I adore antique cuts. Cannot wait to see yours!

Mine is an old mine cut that’s been part of DH’s family for 100 years. It’s 3.8 cts, and obviously the setting is new. It sparkled like crazy and is magical in low light/candlelight. I dont know the color grade, but sometimes I see it’s warmer though I do know it’s flawless. I love it!

Lots of women on Pricescope.com have Old Mine Cut diamonds and they are gorgeous! Remember that diamond colour is graded by looking at the bottom of the stone, not from the top, which is how you will see it once it is set. I like the warmth of old mind cuts a lot! I’m sure you’ll love it!

cvaldes13:  if it’s GIA graded, I is not that warm For an old cut. Most older cuts tend to be k-l-m, so you got a good one 🙂

Can’t wait to see it!!

I have an OMC but it is much smaller than yours at around 1\2 ct. It was my grandmother’s ring from 1937. It’s my favorite cut and I can’t see anything off color in it at all. So you are one lucky girl!

cvaldes13:  Antique cuts looks so much better when they are warm, IMO. I think your stone is going to be fabulous and I wouldn’t worry about it!!

cvaldes13:  Mine is a 2.5ct old mine cut, G colour, SI1 clarity so will be pretty similar in size. My finger size is 5.5 for reference.

cvaldes13:  My engagement ring is just over 1 carat and is an Old Mine Cut in an illusion setting.  It belonged to my husband’s grandmother.  I am not sure what color it is or any other specs, but I really love it.  Here are some photos that our photographer took of our rings (cropped to just show the engagement ring) on our wedding day:
