Before bruting machines were invented, diamonds and gemstones were cut by hand and made to dazzle under limited light like that from a candle. Old mine cuts have 58 facets and are slightly square with rounded-off edges with a very small table at the top. The Old European cut is rounder with a wider table and longer facets. Many antique diamonds will have a yellow tinge to them because those, particularly from the Edwardian period, were mined from the “Old mines” in Brazil and India before the diamonds of Africa which are more colorless, were discovered.
