What You Should Know: The table Cut Diamond has been kept in its original 18th century setting and was originally part of a larger brooch. Diamond is foil-backed and gives off an intense grey shimmer. Set on a bale for movement. Please advise that each pendant is unique in exact shape and will not match the picture precisely.

Table cut diamonds were first introduced in Europe during the 15th century. It is likely that table cuts were “invented” when a diamond in its natural octahedral shape had broken, revealing a flat surface or a “table”. When it was discovered that diamond shapes could be manipulated using their own dust, smooth surfaced table cuts were the first to use the new faceting technique. Along with the point cut, table cuts were the predominant choice from the Renaissance to Georgian Eras. 

When we happen upon antique table cut diamonds, we know how special and historical the piece may be. This table cut originated from the early 1800’s, and once lived in a Georgian brooch. It has maintained an incredible sparkle over the centuries, and have been kept in its original silver collet setting. We placed the diamond component on a modern gold chain, giving this beauty a very deserved new life. A little old, a little new, and a lot of beauty.
