The Old Mine is one of the oldest cuts recognised today. Its name now refers to the age, cut and cutting method of a stone, however the history is somewhat different. Before Africa became the centre of Diamond mining, most stones came from sites in India and Brazil and stones from this era were referred to as 'from the old mines' or 'an old miners cut'.
This style of cut was very popular in the 18th century and became fashionable again in the Victorian period. These stones are greatly sought after today, partly due the the relative rarity of good examples but mainly because they are so inherently charming.
