The old mine cut diamonds preceded modern brilliant-cut diamonds. Characteristics of the older style included a high crown, a small table, and rounded corners of the square face. They were common during the Georgian and Victorian eras. The upcoming Essential Jewelry auction, offered by Hindman, will feature an Art Deco bracelet containing two old European and one old mine cut diamond.
Also available in this auction is a Bulgari yellow gold necklace and bracelet set containing alternating round and oval links with square spacers. A diamond eternity band is another leading lot. With 100 round diamonds on the piece, the eternity band signifies eternal love. Another item of interest is a garnet lizard brooch. Lizards were a popular figure in jewelry during the time of Queen Victoria, representing eternity, divine wisdom, and good fortune. The lizard brooch available in this sale contains old European and mixed-cut diamonds with two pink sapphire eyes. View the complete listings and register to bid on Hindman.
