Old miner…

Old miner…

She’s a lady.

This Old Miner has been through a lot in her time. Old miners are common in antique jewelry dating back to the 1830’s. In fact, many Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian style jewellery pieces feature this shape due to its popularity in 19th century jewelry design. The original old miner diamonds have a rich history that reflects the history of the diamond jewelry trade.It is one of the earlier “brilliant” shapes, which means that it was cut to allow the diamond to sparkle under even the dimmest candle light of the era.

The next time someone talks about their diamond sparkling from 5 tables or 9 tables away, remind them of the Old Miner- in its day- it was the bomb- by candle light.
