In 1866, diamonds were discovered in South Africa in what came to be known as the Kimberley Mine. Such a large discovery made diamonds accessible to those who had enough discretionary income to afford fine jewellery, but were not necessarily royalty. Prior to 1866, there were very few diamonds in the world and those that existed came mostly from India and Brazil.
Most of our vintage diamonds are circa 1866–1930, with the Old Mine cuts dating from the earlier part of this period and the Old European cuts dating from the later part.
