Our estate and recycled diamonds  are generally modern cuts that have been unset from old jewellery dating back as far as the 1960s.  They are repaired and repolished if necessary and then regraded; estate diamonds larger than 0.30 often carry modern certificates from labs such as GIA.  We think giving a diamond a second life is a great way to get a natural diamond that has a lower impact and price than a new diamond.
