Antique Diamond Wedding Set Old Mine Cut 14K Gold, 2008
Digital Chromegenic Print, 8x10"

Up for bid is an original photograph depicting a diamond wedding set. The photograph is by artist, Erik Dalzen, and is titled "Antique Diamond Wedding Set Old Mine Cut 14K Gold" The photograph measures 8x10 inches (including border). Numbered 1/10 from a limited edition of 10 prints in this size. Signed, numbered, and dated on the back.

This is a beautiful antique wedding set* with exquisite craftsmanship and timeless eloquence. The engagement ring features a prominent old mine cut diamond flanked by three smaller diamonds on each side. Old mine cut diamonds were popular throughout the 1800's, cut to maximize carat weight and feature the most favorable appearance. They are characterized by a high crown, small table, deep pavilion and large cutlet. The result is that the diamond has an enchanting, soft romantic glow rather than the harsh "fire" of modern diamond styles. The wedding band is a beautiful compliment with nine channel set diamonds. This amazing antique set is superbly crafted with diamonds cut by hand, 14K White Gold, and solid and secure settings. Other names for old mine cut include: old miner, cushion cut, peruzzi cut, and triple cut brilliant.

*This is only background information about the rings pictured. The actual wedding set is not included in this auction. If you are the winning bidder you will receive a photograph in the mail, shipped in a flat envelope.
