About The April Birthstone Ring
Older vintage diamond rings tend to have larger facets than more contemporary ones. One of the most popular vintage cuts is the old mine cut, which was designed for candlelight, but still looks wonderful in any kind of light. Most of these diamonds were cut by hand, so each stone’s facets will vary slightly, unlike machine-cut stones. If you want an artisanal April birthstone ring, an old mine cut is a lovely option.
